Gateway not only prides itself on being a safe & enjoyable business for its employees but also as an important member of the local (and greater) community. Our initiatives ensure that we strive to leave the world a better place through our environmental processes, internal energy saving programs and external philanthropic activities.
Gateway entered a 4 person team in the 2016 Oxfam Trailwalker; a 100km non-stop hike through the West Australian bush to raise money for people in need all over the world.
Oxfam works with local communities to help them create their own sustainable solutions to poverty. Examples are are promoting education, ensuring access to clean water, teaching skills to grow food and advocating for their basic rights.

Ride to Conquer Cancer
Gateway is proud to have been associated with the MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer since 2012, donning the lycra to raise much needed funds for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. Each rider raises thousands of dollars before putting their bodies on the line to cycle over 200km in rain, hail and sunshine.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
An easy one for our workshop staff…. have a smorgasbord of lunch provided! Gateway was proud to supply a morning tea on Thursday 25th May to raise funds to support the Cancer Council. The company donated food, money and time, whilst our generous management and staff donated funds towards the worthy cause.

Australian Red Cross Blood Donation
Every 3 months the Gateway team rolls up its sleeves (literally) and heads to the local Red Cross centre to donate blood, plasma and/or platelets. One in three Australians will need blood at some time in their life, yet only one in thirty people donate. These important donations contribute to the well-being of accident trauma victims, cancer sufferers and other seriously ill people.
