On Christmas Eve 2020, Resthaven Murray Bridge, Hills & Community Services client, Mr Alby Parslow, was delighted to be ‘gifted’ his Christmas shopping by the team at Woolworths Goolwa.
Resthaven Home Support Worker, Leah Duke, had taken Mr Parslow shopping at Woolies as part of his home care package service. Mr Parson recalls that his son had told him ‘go and buy up big for Christmas, spoil yourself’ – and so he did!
Leah says, ‘We bought prawns, a croquembouche, and other goodies to the value of around $130.’
‘After we put the groceries through the till, the Woolies staff announced that Mr Parslow’s groceries were a Christmas gift from them!’
‘It was a totally unexpected gift from Woolworths, and it made Mr Parslow’s day.’
‘Thank you to Woolworths Goolwa!’
