Did you see Guide Dog puppies visiting shoppers at a Coles store near you in March? Select Coles stores across WA, SA, NT and TAS held a fundraising drive to support Guide Dog schools around Australia, aiming to raise a huge $90,000.
The results are in: across the four states, Coles raised a whopping $102,112.87! Extremely generous West Australians raised over $73,100 of this total, so well done to everyone involved, and a huge thank you to Coles for supporting our Guide Dog program so incredibly!
How did they hit such a huge goal? Coles WA stores placed handy $2 donation cards at their checkouts for shoppers to purchase on their way out, as well as hosting extra fundraising raffles and sausage sizzles. Joondalup, Dianella, South Lake and Raine Square stores were lucky enough to get visits from Public Relations Guide Dogs Gidgee and Luna to treat their customers, as well as puppies-in-training Poppy and Molly!
Coles WA sponsored Poppy in early 2015, and the young black Labrador pup is now about 15 months old. Little Poppy is fantastic with children, and she loved to show this off at her visit to Joondalup Coles as several kids stopped to say “hello.”
