Flower bouquets to support sick kids
VALENTINE’S Day has come and gone but local residents have an even better reason to buy their loved ones a bunch of roses this month with Proserpine and Cannonvale Woolworths donating $2 from the sale of specially marked rose bouquets and flower arrangements to the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Proserpine Woolworths manager Kerry Barry said the store was bumping up their flower orders in anticipation of local families supporting of the cause.
“Our customers always get behind fundraisers for the Children’s Hospital Foundation because they appreciate that illness can strike local families and kids at any time,” he said.
“This fundraiser is a particular favourite because not only does buying a bouquet of flowers get you in the good books at home – but it can also help brighten the day of a sick child and their family in hospital.”
Cannonvale Woolworths produce manager Paul Fogg said the Centro Whitsunday store would also be expanding their range to include a permanent setup in store.
Rose bouquets and flower arrangements are available at any local Woolworths store with $2 from every sale donated back to the Children’s Hospital Foundation to help fund research, equipment, and clinical services to help sick kids and their families while they are in hospital.
Woolworths supports the Children’s Hospital Foundation and has raised more than $30 million for the charity over the course of their 28 year partnership.
