Myhorizon, is calling all animal lovers and their pets to their Bush Pantry café at Capalaba on Monday 20 August to help raise funds for RSPCA’s Cupcake Day.
They will be baking loads of cupcakes to support the work of the RSPCA and are inviting the whole community to bring along their beloved pet pooches or pussy cats to their pet-friendly café for this worthy cause.
Myhorizon CEO, Joe Gamblin is excited to host such an event, “We’re very proud to be supporting RSPCA’s Cupcake Day, and we invite the whole community to come down with their pets. We have the perfect pet friendly venue with a large outdoor café area which we would love to see filled with people’s pet dogs (or cats) on the day all for a worthy cause” says Joe.
“We’re huge animal lovers and know that a lot of our customers are as well. It means a lot to be able to help vulnerable animals across Australia.”
All the money raised from their special cupcakes will go directly towards helping the abandoned, neglected and surrendered animals around the country that turn to the RSPCA looking for love, safe shelter and a helping hand.
Join the event on Monday 20th August at the Bush Pantry Café, at Myhorizon Centre, 1-15A Runnymede Rd, Capalaba anytime between 10am and 2pm for some sweet treats, and help fight animal cruelty.

Myhorizon proudly celebrates the official Grand Opening of their brand new purpose-built facility in the heart of Redland City.

It has been a rewarding journey for Myhorizon to proudly fulfil a community vision after many years, with the opening of their state-of-the-art Community Centre. The event was held on Friday 20 October 2017 at Capalaba, where His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, officially opened the impressive new facility.
Redland City Council Mayor Karen Williams also attended and spoke at the event, and was joined by approximately 200 attendees including local council representatives, government members, and Myhorizon clients and staff.
The multi-million dollar flagship centre on Runnymede Road, next to Indigiscapes, boasts a range of high quality services and purpose built facilities, all designed to support the ongoing needs of people with disabilities in the local community.
CEO of Myhorizon, Joe Gamblin thanked those in the community that supported and contributed to the magnificent community facility, including Redland City Council, Ian McDougall Trust and Redland Foundation.
“What we’ve created has made a real difference to the lives of hundreds of people with disabilities. It has been so rewarding to be able to build on the hard work of our founders and grow the organisation to where it is today, supporting thousands of clients across the state, with the help of so many wonderful people. This ceremony is a wonderful celebration of this rich history and the important work Myhorizon undertakes in the local and wider community” said Mr Gamblin.
Mayor Karen Williams also spoke to the values shared between Myhorizon and Redland City Council. “The Myhorizon community centre shows just what can be achieved when the community comes together, shares a common vision, and gets down and makes it happen. It’s an important, productive and valued community asset and is a true reflection of Myhorizon’s commitment to continuing its important work in the region and council’s support of such services” said Mayor Williams.
Myhorizon employs over 240 passionate staff members across 11 different centres (located from Wynnum through to Tweed Heads). “Our amazing team actively works with 2000 people with disability, from the earliest stages of life through to adulthood” said Mr Gamblin.
Myhorizon’s specialty service areas include Support Coordination, Plan Management, Independent Living, Lifestyle services, Employment & Training and Social Enterprises, as well as Early Intervention services operating out of the new Ian McDougall Centre within the same new facility. This was named after the late Redlands philanthropist whose trust has supported a range of local causes. The Ian McDougall Trust made a $450,000 donation to the early Intervention Centre which is a fantastic place tailoring support to meet the needs of children with disability.
The new centre also doubles as an entertainment venue for public hire with modern event spaces and meeting rooms perfect for corporate meetings, community events, and weddings. The centre’s new cafe The Bush Pantry is open to general public and offers great coffee, refreshments and light snacks, and takes advantage of the picturesque surroundings of Redlands’ Botanical Gardens.
