Thank you to Little Athletics Centres and Volunteers

Coles would like to thank the valuable contribution of all centre volunteers, families and of course the athletes for supporting the Coles Little Athletics partnership during the 2019/20 season.

To help us evaluate the impact of the partnership we would love to hear about your centre’s experiences with Coles and any ideas you have to ensure continuous improvement. The below survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and will be open until Thursday 9 April.
