Major supermarket Woolworths are using their big brand recognition to raise money for St Giles at this year’s Agfest.
Enticing patrons with a variety of free samples from National Pies to Cripps Bread, Tasmanian businesses who generously donated their goods to help Woolworths with the cause.
St Giles is a Tasmanian organisation that supports individuals with a wide range of needs, focusing on people with developmental delays and disabilities. The organisation provides an incredible range of programs and services to help anyone reach their full potential.
Last year Woolworths made $2,000 for St Giles and this year aim to reach at least $5000 in donations.
So far people have been greatly generous and willing to help the cause.
“It’s amazing, the generosity. We always say Tasmania is the most generous state. it just blows us away every year” Said Wesley Polden, community engagement officer for Woolworths Tasmania.
Get yourself down to the Woolworths tent, grab a sausage and make a small (or big) donation to St Giles.
