MOSMAN Park shoppers can lay claim to being the most generous in WA after they donated the greatest amount to kids’ cancer charity Redkite at their Coles supermarket during Christmas.
Redkite head of fundraising Isobel Lindley said the suburb’s shoppers raised more than $9500 by buying a $2 Christmas card during the five-week campaign.
“I think the significant amount was because it was a children’s cancer charity,” Mosman Park Coles manager Will Henry said.
Customers who also bought gingerbread men at the supermarket contributed 20c to a campaign.
Nationally, more than $1.6 million was collected to support children and young people with cancer, and their families.
The WA contribution to the total was about $240,000.
