Chiro asks for can-do spirit

IN A special effort to fundraise for a good cause, Coast to Country Chiropractic is encouraging its patients to substitute the hard earned Australian dollar for a simple can of food this weekend.

Coast to Country Chiropractic will hold its annual fundraiser on behalf of the Fresh Hope Association Inc this Saturday with all staff volunteering their services and time.

The 'Can the Chiro' Day will see patients donate canned and non-perishable goods to the value of the service they receive from Coast to Country Chiropractic with all goods given to Fresh Hope.

Any cash payments on the day are also donated.

Fresh Hope is a therapeutic home with an 18 month residential program, specifically designed for mothers (suffering from substance abuse) and their children.

The non-profit community based organisation helps to assist both mothers and children to recover while building their self esteem, parenting and practical life skills in a safe, family environment.

The event was created to help reduce the weekly food costs as that is one of the biggest bills for the organisation.

The event will run from 8.30am until lunch at Coast to Country Chiropractic located in Hunter Arcade on Railway Street.

To make a booking for Saturday, contact the clinic on 5462 3819.

Local businesses have also donated items to be raffled on the day with the proceeds being passed on to Fresh Hope.

To help give Fresh Hope an extra boost, a special piece of sporting memorabilia will also go on auction.

The valuable piece is specially framed and contains the signed photos of members from the Miracle Milers Hall of Fame, the fastest men in the world to ever run a mile.

For more information contact Nicola Ibbotson on 0414 797 106.
