Woolworths nationwide sausage sizzle results

13 February 2012

Local community groups across Australia will benefit from a $500,000 financial boost thanks to Woolworths and our customers.

Tjeerd Jegen, Director of Supermarkets, said; “To celebrate Woolworths 25 years as ‘The Fresh Food People’ during Australia Day week, Woolworths supermarkets across the country hosted fundraising BBQs to benefit worthy local community groups.

“Gold coin donations for a great Aussie sausage sandwich raised an amazing $253,174. Woolworths promised to match the amount raised by our customers. This takes the total to $506,348 - a terrific amount that reflects our customers’ generosity and love of a sausage sandwich.

“Our stores nominated a local community group that they wanted to support. Community groups that were nominated include various Children’s Hospitals, The Salvation Army, Scout Groups, RSPCA, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Surf Lifesaving Clubs, to mention a few.”
