Woolworths and Variety the Children’s Charity are encouraging Inverell residents to help support seriously ill children across the state when they shop in the lead up to Halloween.
Local customers at Woolworths Inverell can play their part by simply adding a $1 Halloween fundraising token to their shop from today until October 31.
“As kids and parents are carving out their pumpkins, selecting their scary costumes and getting excited for their annual Halloween celebrations, this year is extra special as it provides an opportunity to help other families at the same time,” local store manager Kim Fenton said.
“We’re proud of our long standing partnership with Variety and are always overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers. We hope they can not only enjoy their spooky tricks, but also include a treat in the form of a token to help raise funds for children and families across NSW.”
100 per cent of funds raised through the Woolworths Halloween fundraising appeal will help Variety the Children’s Charity in their ongoing efforts to support children across the state who are facing challenges through illness, disadvantage or living with disability.
Variety helps children and their families with financial support for things like wheelchairs, specialist equipment, therapy, and medical supplies, when they can not afford it and when government assistance isn’t available.
“We appreciate the ongoing support of Woolworths customers and team members across NSW,” Variety chief executive officer David Sexton said.
“Funds raised across the Woolworths Halloween fundraising appeal will help us in our mission to give Aussie kids in need and their families a fair go, so we encourage local support from Inverell shoppers.”
