ELLENBROOK residents have dug deep and have helped raise $1.26 million for Guide Dogs Australia through donations at Coles supermarkets.

The Ellenbrook Coles was one of the largest contributors in Australia, with shoppers donating $4577 over a 12-month period.

Guide Dogs Australia national manager Sacha Koltun said she was grateful for the ongoing support.

“We are blown away by the generosity of Coles customers and team members who have helped reach this remarkable milestone,” she said.

“More than 70 per cent of the total was raised through spare change dropped into the collection dogs at Coles, which proves no matter how big or small the donation is, every dollar counts in our mission to help more people in need.”
