“After five successful years, the annual Mai-Wel Gala Ball has cemented its place as Maitland’s premium calendar event of the year. Gecko Security is proud to support the 6th event this year which raises not only funds, but also awareness to the needs of those in our community that need assistance”, said Mr Pritchard. 

“The night is truly a fantastic evening of fun and socialising which has an added benefit of assisting The Mai-Wel Group to continue to provide their fantastic service to our region. I look forward to seeing you there!”
