Corowa in­vited to help ill kids

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Hal­loween has be­come a pop­u­lar oc­ca­sion for Aus­tralian fam­i­lies and this year cus­tomers are in­vited to help other fam­i­lies when do­ing their shop­ping in the lead up to the day.

Lo­cal cus­tomers at Wool­worths Corowa can play their part by sim­ply adding a $1 Wool­worths Hal­loween fundrais­ing to­ken to their shop from now un­til Oc­to­ber 31.

All funds raised through the Wool­worths Hal­loween fundrais­ing ap­peal will help the good work of 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 the Chil­dren’s Char­ity helps chil­dren and their fam­i­lies with fi­nan­cial sup­port for things like wheel­chairs, spe­cial­ist equip­ment, ther­apy, and med­i­cal sup­plies, when they can­not af­ford it and when gov­ern­ment as­sis­tance isn’t avail­able.

David Sex­ton, CEO of Va­ri­ety the Chil­dren’s Char­ity NSW said: “We ap­pre­ci­ate the on­go­ing sup­port of Wool­worths cus­tomers and team mem­bers across NSW. 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 Corowa shop­pers.”

Wool­worths Corowa Store Man­ager, He­len Hen­dren said: “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.

“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.”

Wool­worths and Va­ri­ety the Chil­dren’s Char­ity are en­cour­ag­ing Corowa res­i­dents to help sup­port se­ri­ously ill chil­dren across the state when they shop in the lead up to Hal­loween.
