Woolworths and the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia are encouraging Moreton Bay residents to help support Queenslanders in need across the state when they shop in the lead up to Halloween.
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 stores in Moreton Bay can play their part by simply adding a $1 Woolworths Halloween fundraising token to their shop from today until 31 October 2018.
100% of funds raised through the Woolworths Halloween fundraising appeal will help the good work of Royal Flying Doctor Service in their ongoing efforts to support rural communities requiring emergency medical services.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world, providing extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to people over an area of 7.3 million square kilometres.
Meredith Staib, CEO, Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) said; “We appreciate the ongoing support of Woolworths customers and team members across Queensland and northern NSW. Funds raised across this Halloween campaign will allow us to purchase vital medical equipment, which will help us deliver even greater health outcomes for people in regional, rural and remote Queensland.”
Woolworths stores in Moreton Bay Operations Manager Robert Draper , 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 the Royal Flying Doctor Service 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 children and families across QLD.”
