To celebrate the end of the footy season, Woolworths and Variety - the Children’s Charity have teamed up and are encouraging Gloucester residents to kick a goal for charity.
From September 6 until October 3, you can opt to purchase a footy shaped wall token for $2 with the funds going directly to help Variety to support children and families who are facing challenges through illness, disadvantage or living with disability.
The tokens will be placed on a poster displayed in the Gloucester store; you can even choose to add your to the token.
Variety helps children and their families with financial support for things like wheelchairs, specialist equipment, therapy, and medical supplies, when they can’t afford it and when government assistance isn’t available.
“Woolworths customers and team members across NSW and ACT have been long term supporters of Variety, assisting to raise more than $4 million over 4 years,” Variety chief executive officer, David Sexton said.
“Every child has the right to attain their full potential, regardless of ability or background, and this year’s fundraising effort at Woolworths will help kick a goal for children across the state.
“Funds raised make a big difference, so we’re very grateful for the support and generosity of Gloucester customers.”
Woolworths Gloucester store manager, Glen McCormack said they are proud to support such an important cause in such a fun way.
“We expect to kick some fantastic goals for Variety again this year and would like to encourage all residents to add a $2 wall token to their grocery shop with the funds raised benefiting children and families across NSW,” he said.
