Shop to Support Australian Bushfire Relief

13 Jan 2020

Our thoughts are with the people affected by this unprecedented disaster and with the brave men and women at the fire front who are working tirelessly to keep our communities safe. Our centre is managed by Vicinity Centres and we, as a business, will make a cash donation to The Salvation Army and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal to help those affected by the ongoing bushfire crisis.

We have also coordinated a donation point at the Colonnades Customer Service Desk for customers who would like to support the bushfire disaster relief efforts through a cash donation. 100% of funds donated here will go to our chosen charity partners, The Salvation Army and the CFS Foundation.

Many of our retail partners are also offering support to various charities and are taking donations in store. If you are curious as to how you can shop in support, we have compiled a list of Colonnades stores who are helping contributing to bush fire crisis relief.
