Mentor Support Network is supported by many generous partners, without whom we wouldn’t exist.
Our services and programs during 2017 would not be possible without the help of our generous supporters. Support can be financial or in-kind; and is at times a combination of both.
“Our partnership ticks just about all the boxes. It is local and we get to see real results achieved by real people. We can see that our members’ money is both valued and valuable to the wider community. ” Des Skinner (Beresfield Bowling Club).
In addition to those sponsors listed below, we would also like to recognize the support of Mrs Bev Steggles and South Maitland Railways.
