In conjunction with our valued suppliers and Bedford, Drakes Supermarkets are proud to announce the release of the Annual Drakes Charity Showbag – available in all Drakes stores in South Australia from Wednesday 30th August.
Jam-packed with donated goodies from our wonderful supplier partners, the proceeds from the sale of the showbags will be donated to four charities that we hold close to our hearts:
Flinders Medical Research Foundation
The Foundation works to support a team of more than 3,500 medical staff and 400 medical researchers across the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) which includes Flinders Medical Centre, and Flinders University, and has donated more than $65 million towards research, facilities and patient care initiatives at Flinders.
The Hospital Research Foundation
The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) supports people in hospitals across South Australia through vital health and medical research and improved patient care.
Changing the lives of people living with disability by building their skills to participate in the community, Bedford offers employment, training, day options and accommodation across South Australia and NSW. The Bedford Group play a pivotal role with the Drakes Charity Showbag, carefully packing the 18,000 bags in preparation for sale.
As Australia’s oldest provider of home nursing and health care services, the RDNS offer a wide range of general and specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The care they provide enables people to remain in their own home so they can maintain their independence and have some say in their own healthcare.
In 2016 alone, we raised $89,072 for our charity partners. This year, with a total value of $70, you can grab your value-packed Drakes Charity Showbag from your local Drakes store for only $6.99 – while stocks last!
