Be in to win with Scratch ‘n’ Win for a great cause

Variety – the Children’s Charity’s popular Scratch ‘n’ Win campaign is back for yet another year, with one Ford Fiesta Sport up for grabs as the major prize offering.

On sale at The Warehouse stores across the country from Wednesday 22 August through to Tuesday 11 September, there’s over $72,000 worth of prizes to be won.

The fundraising initiative last year raised over $370,000 in-store for Kiwi kids in need and Variety’s chief executive officer, Lorraine Taylor, says the charity is hopeful another fantastic result will amount this year.

“There are so many fabulous prizes on offer, thanks to the generous support we have received from many businesses, and so I encourage everyone to pop down to your local Warehouse store and purchase a Scratch ‘n’ Win ticket.”

Funds raised through the campaign will go towards Variety’s Kiwi Kid Sponsorship programme as well as to its general grants programme, both of which provide vital, targeted support to disadvantaged Kiwi kids.

The Scratch ‘n’ Win tickets cost $2 each.
