large amusement rides, various stalls,
hot food, fireworks and some great
country entertainment. A fantastic

Eat treats for a good cause
Starting this month, up to $1 from
each ‘heart themed combo’ will go
to HeartKids – a charity devoted to
supporting children and their families
affected by Childhood Heart Disease,
and funding much-need research.
The initiative will raise funds from
special Heart Kids treats purchased
from Ipswich’s Donut King, Michel’s
Patisserie, Brumby’s Bakeries, and Big
Dad’s Pies stores.
Roslyn Patten from Donut King
at Booval Fair is right behind the
promotion. “Just to get a chance to help
some of these kids born with heart
problems is a great cause,” she said.
“We see so many smiling kids run up
to our store, and the chance to put a
smile on the face of sick kids who could
say no? All the store owners are right
behind it, now we need our customers
to get involved too.”
A range of heart-shaped goodies will
be available in the hope of hitting the
magic $1 million target.
Parent company Retail Food Group’s
CEL Tony Alford said he was keen to
raise the awareness of Childhood Heart
Disease in Ipswich because it affected
so many Australian families.
“HeartKids Australia requires funding
to not only financially assist and provide
long term support to those families
whose children suffer heart defects but
importantly to advance much needed
research into developing long term
positive outcomes for sufferers and
hopefully cures,” he said.
RFG Chief Marketing Officer Tracey
Catterall said the Ipswich stores
hoped to help raise over $1 million for
HeartKids during the next 12 months.
“When RFG staff and our franchisee
community understood that six
children each day and more than
2,000 children a year are born with
heart defects, it was overwhelmingly
endorsed that we should emotionally
and financially provide support,” she
said. Child heart defects range from
holes in their hearts to children being
born with only one chamber.
“ We’re urging all residents in Ipswich
to think twice when they shop and buy
their bread, coffees and treats from
one of our retail outlets and join our
campaign to help raise over $1 million
dollars for these beautiful kids.”
