Call for shoppers to aid cancer cause
Geraldton shoppers can help families affected by cancer through national charity Redkite.
From now until Boxing Day, customers can either purchase a $2 Redkite donation card at Coles, Geraldton, or a $1 Coles gingerbread man, with 20¢ from every sale going directly to Redkite. Redkite fundraising head Isobel Lindley said cancer made Christmas a difficult time for too many families and the appeal would provide financial support.
“Unfortunately, cancer doesn’t stop at Christmas and the pressure on families can be heightened when a child or young person is in hospital or very sick,” she said.
Redkite estimates demand for support will increase by 25 per cent in WA this month and financial assistance for children and young people affected by cancer will be in higher demand because of rising travel and living costs.
