As part of the Best of the Best Buy Show 2019, Staley Food & Packaging won a block of Cadbury chocolate (courtesy of Mondelez), for purchasing from the highest number of Suppliers during the event. This in itself wouldn’t be particularly special, if the block wasn’t more than a square meter big and weighing a solid 10kg!
But rather than devouring the treat themselves, Business Owner John Staley and General Manager Keith Patterson decided to use the chocolate for a worthy cause.
Being part of the local Lion’s Club in Dardanup, Keith approached the club to conduct a raffle, which turned out to be a huge success.
1,200 tickets were sold during the event and enabled Staley’s, in conjunction with Dardanup Lions, to be able to donate $1,000 to South West Refuge and $1,000 to Bunbury InTown Centre.
Despite very little government funding, both organisations ‘do fantastic things in the local community’. South West Refuge provide accommodation and support for people escaping abusive relationships and Bunbury In Town Centre assist with meals for the needy and homeless.
Raising the funds was a fantastic achievement and the team from Staley’s are very proud that their block of chocolate was able to provide invaluable support and make the raffle winner the most popular Grandad in Bunbury!
