Midwest Times - - NEWS -

Coles super­mar­kets have part­nered with Red­kite, launch­ing a five-week Christ­mas cam­paign to help fam­i­lies af­fected by can­cer.

Un­til De­cem­ber 4, $2 do­na­tion cards and Red­kite­branded prod­ucts will be sold at Coles sites across Aus­tralia, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the can­cer char­ity.

Money raised will help fam­i­lies af­fected by can­cer pay for house­hold bills, as well as med­i­cal and travel ex­penses.

In the past five years, WA fam­i­lies have faced a 31 per cent rise in the cost of med­i­cal and hos­pi­tal ser­vices and a 17 per cent in­crease in util­ity costs, ac­cord­ing to the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics.
