3 ways you’re helping Aussie kids with cancer

Redkite DonationThanks to you, our customers and team members, together we’ve raised over $9.3 million for Redkite over the last 18 months.   Here are 3 ways the funds we’ve raised are helping Aussie kids and young people with cancer:

  1. Emotional Support: Information and counselling in hospital, on the phone and via email.
  2. Financial Support: Practical support with the essentials like food and fuel when parents stop work to be at the bedside.
  3. Educational Support: Education and career support to help keep up with school and training during months or years of treatment. Redkite has also just opened its Dare to Dream Scholarship program for young people (aged 15 – 24) living with cancer.

About Redkite:
Redkite is a cancer charity that supports children and young people with cancer and their families (as well as cancer survivors). This support from us is especially important as they receive no government funding and there are more families than ever before accessing Redkite’s services.  Every day an additional four children or young people will be diagnosed with cancer. They and their families can face years of treatment.

To find out more about the work Redkite does and the new Dare to Dream Scholarship, visit redkite.org.au.

True Blue Aussie Peaches at Coles

Nick, Coles Peach Grower
Three generations of the Parris family have been growing peaches for SPC for more than 60 years. Nick Parris, pictured above, harvests peaches from the family orchard in Bunbartha, in the fertile soils of Victoria’s Goulburn Valley.

Coles Aussie Canned PeachesVictoria’s Goulburn Valley provides the perfect growing conditions for peaches – as well as pears and apricots. When you reach for a can of all-Australian Coles Brand peaches, apricots or pears, you’ll be getting a healthy serve of the 70-year relationship between SPC and Coles to bring you locally sourced fruit from the Goulburn Valley.  SPC was started by Australian farmers as a co-op in the Goulburn Valley in 1917. Many of the 120 growers who supply this fruit are highly skilled orchardists, often with a strong family connection to fruit growing in the Goulburn Valley region.

With all Coles Brand canned peaches, pears and apricots coming from SPC and the Goulburn Valley, the volume sourced locally will increase to more than 4 million kilograms of fruit annually – which is more than 300 truckloads.

So look out for Coles Aussie canned peaches in the grocery section of your local Coles or online at shop.coles.com.au.  If you’ve got a sweet tooth, we also suggest we check out our sensational True Blue Peach Cobbler recipe at recipes.coles.com.au.
