Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Community Care Program Set To Educate Healthy Habits

Porters have been supporting and working with the Mackay community for 140 years, growing and expanding within the region. Continuing their support for community programs, the Porters Cutters Care program has kicked off for the year.

This program is a community initiative that aims to promote healthy learning and physical activity among young children, by providing a fun and engaging session of sports and team-building exercises.

The program seeks to instil in children the importance of a healthy lifestyle and promote the development of fundamental skills necessary for their physical and mental wellbeing.

The program is delivered by the QCCS Mackay Cutters Wellbeing Manager, Jarrod Cane, an experienced professional in sports and wellbeing. Jarrod, along with several Cutters players, facilitates the sessions to provide guidance and support to the students. The players are not only experienced in the game, but they are also role models, inspiring the students to pursue their dreams and work hard towards achieving their goals.

The program aims to create a fun and engaging environment that encourages children to participate and learn these skills in a positive and supportive setting. The program forms a very important part of the QCCS Mackay Cutters Change the Game initiative which plays a role in building a healthy and inclusive region.

Porters chose to support this community program as it invests in the future of our local youth. Promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging children in sports and educating them on healthy habits is an area Porters is passionate about.

Porters is a proud supporter of the Mackay and Whitsunday community, taking great pride in standing by the tagline ‘locals supporting locals’.  Some of the organisations the Porters Group involves themselves with are Airlie Beach Bowls Club, Galaxy Netball Club, Mackay Cutters Rugby League team, Mackay Region Chamber of Commerce, Pioneer Valley Swim Club, Sarina Saints Football Club and Whitsunday Brahmans Football Club.
