Store pitches in for sick kids
Tuesday, 29th September, 2009
Local Woolworths staff are holding a monster garage sale on Saturday to raise money for sick children.
The garage sale will begin at 8am at 272 Clarke Street in the south and will include a vast array of items ranging from electrical goods to books.
Store Trading Manager, Robert Slater, said the garage sale was being held to raise money for the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide as part of Woolworths' Fresh Food Kids Hospital Appeal. Mr Slater said the store has supported the appeal for a number of years and decided a garage sale of items donated by staff and customers would be a fun way to raise money. "I think it will be really good. "Everyone's willing to do it and the public have been fantastic." The store will also be fundraising through a sausage sizzle at the garage sale, collection tins in the store, and the sale of $2 get well cards. Mr Slater said locals always got behind the appeal, which last year raised $5.6 million nationally. "Broken Hill people have always been really generous," Mr Slater said. Anyone wishing to donate items can do so at the local Woolworths store.
