5 Minutes with Kyme

Hi Everyone, hope everything is going well.

Just wanted to take the opportunity to give a quick thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket or donated to the recent fundraiser we held for one of our staff, Anya Davey.

We had been fundraising to help Anya, who has worked as a volunteer on checkouts at Queens IGA for the past 13 years. Anya suffers from non-verbal cerebral palsy, and she requires a new modified vehicle to help transport her and her newly acquired wheelchair so that she may participate in community and social activities with greater independence.

The response from both staff and customers was incredible, with this raffle being one of the most successful we have had to date.

A massive thank-you to Mitchell & Brown Retravision, who not only generously supplied the raffle prize, but also helped out to sell tickets. This a perfect example of how local businesses continue to help and support their local people and communities and why it is so important for us all to continue to support them.

Through our fundraiser competition and donations we were able to raise $9,435 and has meant that Anya and her family also achieved their GoFundMe target of $15,000!

Rigters Supermarkets & Mitchell & Brown Retravision couldn’t be happier with this amazing result and wish Anya and the Davey Family all the best with their new wheels!
