Fundraising boost at Woolworths
Queensland’s sickest kids will benefit from a fundraising boost as the Channel Nine Telethon continues to gain momentum at Woolworths.
Local shoppers have been purchasing more than just groceries during their regular supermarket trips, generously donating to the Woolworths Telethon appeal, with funds raised set to help thousands of sick kids admitted to hospital each year.
Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Rosie Simpson is calling on Queenslanders to visit their local Woolworths and make a donation in the lead-up to Telethon, on Saturday 18 of November.
“Without the unwavering support from Woolworths and their customers over the last 30 years, the Children’s Hospital Foundation simply could not have done what we do for sick kids across Queensland,” Rosie said.
“And as a presenting partner of the Channel Nine Telethon, Woolworths continue to show how much they care for our sickest kids. I encourage all Queenslanders to visit their local Woolworths and make a donation so we can reach our telethon target and help more sick kids.”
Woolworths has supported the Children’s Hospital Foundation for more than 30 years, and has raised over $46 million since fundraising started in 1986 in order to provide clinical and medical research, state-of-the-art medical equipment, and patient support.
Members of the community can make a donation to help sick kids by visiting their local Woolworths Telethon fundraising party on Saturday 18 November.
With the continued support of Woolworths’ staff and customers, we will continue to fund vital research to provide faster diagnoses, better treatments, and ultimately cures for the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries.
