When you drop into your local Woolworths supermarket this October you can add a $2 token to your shopping, Round Up your purchase at Self Checkouts or use the Donation Buttons to Give for the Kids.

The four-week campaign is one of the many fundraising initiatives Woolworths runs each year to support sick kids treated at The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Woolworths teams and customers have raised almost $25 million

Woolworths and the Good Friday Appeal have had a special partnership for almost 35 years. Since 1987, the generous Woolworths team and their customers have raised almost $25 million to help make a difference for sick kids.

The Woolworths stores across Victoria and southern New South Wales are passionate about making a difference for patients and their families through in-store fundraising, including wall token campaigns, Round Up, the Donation Buttons and selling AFL premiership posters. They also hold staff fundraising events and activities, and support Appeal fundraising activities, including providing raffle prizes.

Your Impact

The funds raised in Woolworths stores are dedicated to a range of support programs that help children feel more comfortable about being at the Hospital and having procedures, and help sick children get better.

The programs include Child Life Therapy, Comfort Kids, the Be Positive Show and the Hospital Lingo game show.

Thank you, Woolworths!
