Having been nominated as finalists in seven of the nine award categories at the Clubs & Community Awards this year, Mounties Group proudly scooped up a win in the Health & Wellbeing category whilst being highly commended for their contribution to the community through their drought relief initiatives.
While 2020 proved an incredibly challenging year for the hospitality and club industries to navigate, it also provided some perspective, driving a greater sense of mateship across the board. An incredible number of businesses stepped up their efforts in supporting their local communities across Australia and the Club & Community Awards this year really highlighted this.
As local community hubs, whether they were lending their premises to bushfire and flood victims, championing worthy causes and raising funds, or simply providing a meeting place where locals could see a friendly face, clubs in NSW have remained focused on providing for their local communities in times of need.
Of course, supporting their local community is not a new concept to Mounties Group, who were formed in 1964 purely for this reason. As a profit-for-purpose business, Australia’s number one club group operates with one goal at the forefront of everything they do – to make the lives of its members better.
It is with this ethos in mind that Mounties Group continue to evolve and adapt to their members changing needs.
Last year, members told Mounties Group via a customer feedback survey, that their number one concern for their future was the health and wellbeing of themselves and their loved-ones, and it was the very same survey that led to the opening of two new state-of-the-art children’s play centres within their flagship locations Mounties and Harbord Diggers.
Securing their win for the Health & Wellbeing category was the launch of Mounties Care – a free health and wellbeing service available to all 160,000+ members across NSW.
Mounties Group partnered with leading integrated care specialists, Vitalis, to support the health, wellbeing, independence and quality of life of all members. The group provides a trusted network of accredited service providers, offering a holistic approach to health including:
- Free Members Healthline
- Home Care Services
- Care Navigation
- Allied Health
- Hospital at Home
- General Practitioners
- Mental Health Support
- Women’s Health
Kevin Ingram OAM and President of Mounties Group described how proud he is of the group to have been nominated as finalists in so many categories and how the last year has spurred them on to create great things.
“2020 will go down in history as one of our toughest years yet but with the many lows we experienced as a business, there were in fact far greater highs. Born from the challenge, uncertainty and stress we all had to endure, many fantastic things happened for us as a group and more importantly for our members and our local communities,”
“I could not be prouder of what we have achieved as a team this past year – bringing Mounties Care to our members, amalgamating with more venues and being able to help more people in NSW as a result, is a defining moment for us.” Just being recognised for the work that we are doing, let alone winning awards, is something we can all be proud of. I am excited to see what the next year brings as we invest further into the initiatives and programs that really matter to our members.”
