Since November 2018 Coles have provided more than $1 million in grants for new sports equipment to Little Athletics Centres across Australia.
Funds for the grants are raised through the sale of specially marked chiller bags designed by 9 year old Lachie Macdonal from Victoria and 12 year old Charlie De Bruyn from Western Australia. For every bag sold, 25 centres is directed to the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund to provide sport equipment grants.
Martin Stillman, Coles Little Athletics Australia Chief Executive Officer said the funding has made a big difference to many Little Athletics Centres.
“Coles have made a significant contribution to Little Athletics by providing over $1 million in funding to Little Athletics Centres through the sale of the Little Athletics chiller bags. The funding has provided Little Athletics Centres which some much needed new equipment that will be used in programs this season and in the future”.
