Shop­pers lead the way

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

EL­LEN­BROOK res­i­dents have dug deep and have helped raise $1.26 mil­lion for Guide Dogs Aus­tralia through do­na­tions at Coles su­per­mar­kets.

The El­len­brook Coles was one of the largest con­trib­u­tors in Aus­tralia, with shop­pers do­nat­ing $4577 over a 12-month pe­riod.

Guide Dogs Aus­tralia na­tional man­ager Sacha Koltun said she was grate­ful for the on­go­ing sup­port.

“We are blown away by the gen­eros­ity of Coles cus­tomers and team mem­bers who have helped reach this re­mark­able mile­stone,” she said.

“More than 70 per cent of the to­tal was raised through spare change dropped into the col­lec­tion dogs at Coles, which proves no mat­ter how big or small the do­na­tion is, ev­ery dol­lar counts in our mis­sion to help more peo­ple in need.”
