The Lions and Woolworths organised a grocery grab to raise funds for a special cause.November 26, 2012 4:33am
The Benalla Lions Club and Woolworths team up for a good cause - known as the Woolworths Grocery Grab.
Benalla Lions Club together with Woolworths Benalla recently sold Grocery Grab raffle tickets to raise money for the Lions Cord Blood Foundation Inc.
The foundation supplies the Bone Marrow Donor Institute (situated in Melbourne) with funding for the storage of cord blood units which are collected from the umbilical cords of newborn babies.
When processed, the stem cells from the cord blood assist children to battle leukaemia.
The winning ticket was held by Ian and Eileen Skelton.
Early on the morning of Halloween, the grocery grab was held at the Woolworths store, hosted by store manager Kristian Lindsay and the Lions Club president Peter Poels.
Eileen and Ian had three minutes to run along the aisles and collect their favourite goods.
Woolworths kindly donated towards the cost of the groceries, and its support is greatly appreciated by the Lions Club.
