Ritchies sponsor Westpac Rescue Helicopter Crewman Dave Wells
Ritchies NSW State Manager, David Scally, recently presented a cheque for $55,879.55 to the Service Business Manager, Phil Williams, at a presentation held at the Broadmeadow Base on 27 January.
The money is part of the grocer’s support as a Crew Sponsor and was raised as part of the IGA Community Chest Program – which encourages customers to purchase IGA branded products with a portion of the profits being donated to a local community organisation.
Ritchies SUPA IGA announced its sponsorship of Crewman David Wells late last year and will continue to encourage customers to be part of its Customer Benefit Program. When a Community Benefit Card is scanned at the checkout, 1% of each customer’s purchase is donated to the club, school or charity of their choice. Westpac Rescue Helicopters in NSW have so far received over $232,402.46 (at end July 2009).
