Woolworths to be Bringing Kids to the Games

Andrew Gaze with students of Clifton Hill Primary School.Supermarket retailer Woolworths, under its Victorian branded Safeway supermarkets, will be rewarding 3,000 Victorian school children with Games tickets in the Bringing Kids to the Games initiative.

Safeway supermarkets across Victoria have been allocated Games tickets to reward schools considered to have made the largest contribution to the local community in the past 12 months.

The CEO of Woolworths, Mr Roger Corbett, said not only will Woolworths provide tickets to the Games; they will also provide transport for the students to and from the venue.

“We are delighted to be able to bring the community and the Commonwealth Games together in this way,” Mr Corbett said.

The program, launched at Clifton Hill Primary School by the Premier of Victoria, Mr Steve Bracks, is promised to be the most significant corporate community endeavour to ever take place in Victoria.

“Woolworths will reward positive contributions made to the community by school children,” Mr Bracks said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for children all over Victoria to experience the excitement of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games.

“This will also encourage all of us to recognise the great contribution so many young people are making to our communities.”

To enter the Bringing Kids to the Games program, visit the Woolworths Website, complete the application form and return it to your local Safeway supermarket by 16 December 2005. Selected schools will be announced at the beginning of the 2006 school year. The program is open only to Victorian schools, with Terms and Conditions available on the Woolworths Website.
