Halloween fundraiser at Bulli

image001HALLOWEEN has become a popular occasion for families in the northern Illawarra, and this year Woolies’ customers are invited to help other families when doing their shopping in the lead up to the day.

Customers at the supermarket at Bulli, Corrimal and Fairy Meadow can play their part by adding a $1 Woolworths Halloween fundraising token to their shop from today until October 31.

One hundred per cent of funds raised through the 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 can not 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 Northern Illawarra shoppers.”

Woolworths Bulli, Corrimal and Fairy Meadow Group Manager , Lisa Ingram 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.”
