In this season of giving, Coles has donated more than $3000 to help local cancer patients.

Most of the money came from a cake stall held at the supermarket for the annual Pink October fundraiser for the Broken Hill Breast Cancer Support Group, said a committee member of the group, Leeann Clogg.

“All the money raised stays in Broken Hill and supports our wig bank which is not just for breast cancer but all cancer patients and allows them to get a free, personalised wig,” Ms Clogg said.

She said that Coles had contributed to the fundraiser since it began in 2014 and their help was greatly appreciated.

The store manager of Coles, Samuel Phillips, said staff were asked to either bake a cake or make a donation and that they had raised $2400 from the cake stall and another $718 from a barbecue held at the supermarket.
