A Big Thankyou from Cobden Primary School
Cobden Primary School wrote to thank Ritchies. The school has received $60,524.18 to date (end May 2011).
David Snell, Head Master, Cobden Primary School stated:
"The Cobden Primary School set themselves a goal of creating a passive recreation area at the school for the students. This area is paved with seats and tables designed as a retreat for the students to spend some quiet time.
The funding provided by Ritchies Supermarkets Community Benefit Card allowed the school to develop this area."
Thank you Ritchies!

Ritchies helps Cobden Primary School Swimming Program
Cobden Primary School has been the beneficiary of Ritchies Community Benefit Card. The wonderful generosity of Ritchies Supermarkets and the Cobden Community has been used on a number of projects at the Primary School.
Most recently, with the money raised from the Community Benefit Program, the Cobden Primary School has employed additional trained Austswim teachers to assist with the swimming program at the Cobden Pool. Without this funding it would be impossible to offer such a comprehensive and detailed swimming program.
Paul Brebner, Store Manager from Ritchies in Cobden dropped in to see first hand the swimming program in action. The program runs from Prep to Yr 6 and is run over a period of 4 weeks culminating in a swimming carnival. The children are developing their swimming and water safety skills and at the same time having fun.
