Capricorn Animal Aid have received $1,000 donation as winners of the 'Love Local' promotion held at Allenstown Square during October 2017.
The 'Love Local' promotion - run at selected Charter Hall shopping centres, allowed Allenstown Square retailers to nominate three Community Groups important to them for the chance to win a $1,000 donation. Retailers selected worthy local community groups including RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue, Allenstown State School and Capricorn Animal Aid. Senior Marketing Manager at Allenstown Square, Elio Iacutone said the Love Local promotion offered both customer and Community rewards.
"The only thing better than a good cause is a good cause that directly benefits the Communities in which we operate”.
"Love Local allowed us to reach out to Community Groups that are important to our retailers, and offer them an opportunity to raise some funds simply by shopping at Allenstown Square. Capricorn Animal Aid was nominated by Flight Centre at Allenstown Square” he added.
Capricorn Animal Aid spokesperson Juanita Peoples said $1,000 would be used to pay Veterinary expenses, along with purchasing pet food to support the centre's operations.
"We are humbled by the win and would like to thank all the shoppers that voted for our cause at Capricorn Animal Aid,” said Ms Peoples.
Charter Hall ran the Love Local campaign in 10 of its shopping centres across Queensland and Northern NSW, giving away $28,000 in shopper prizes and $10,000 in donations to local Community Groups.
