Hi Anne,

Welcome to December! 

Summer is here! It is hard to believe that the end of the year has come around again so quickly! Christmas is almost upon us. For many of us, it's a time for holidays and catching up with family and friends.



IGA Today

Superstars! Guess who features in the latest edition of IGA Today, the national retail magazine for IGA stores? Jack and Anne! Plus a wonderful article promoting our very own School Benefits Program. Check it out! 




IGA Supports the 2013 Vinnies Christmas Appeal

IGA is excited to be partnering with the St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies) again this Christmas. Last year the IGA Community Chest raised $285,446.00 for the 2012 Vinnies Christmas Appeal. These funds helped Vinnies provide food and vital support to thousands of people living in poverty across Australia over Christmas.




There are a number of ways you can support Vinnies at Winthrop Gardens Supa IGA this year:

• Support Australian families by purchasing a Christmas paper bauble for just $2 at any of the checkouts. Write your name on the bauble and our friendly staff will display your bauble in store.
• Buy a paper bauble online at iga.com.au/vinnies and a printable email bauble will be sent to you.
• From the 4th December to 31st December 2013 buy specially marked IGA Community Chest products at the store from which funds raised will go direct to the Vinnies Appeal.  


School Benefits Program Update

We have been busy over the past few months visiting all of the School Benefits Program schools. We are in the process of updating each school’s profile on the website and hope to add some current photos to show what the SBP funds have helped purchase in each school. Stay tuned.



Current total donated since June 2011: $35,217.50

Here’s the link to the website for further news and updates. School Benefits Program Update






We are loving the new way to keep in touch with our customers – Facebook. We currently have 122 followers who are kept updated on the happenings in and about the store. Are you one of them? Here we share recipes, ideas, news from the store and even the chance to win prizes! Our current prize is a gourmet Christmas Hamper. All you have to do is "like" the picture of the hamper on our Facebook page and you are in the running to win! We will be drawing the winner on Friday the 20th of December and we will notify the winner via Facebook - unless they have messaged us with a contact number. Good Luck! 





Healthy Hint

I recently read the following interesting health statements and thought them worth sharing. Drinking water at the correct time of day can help to maximise its effectiveness on the human body.

• 2 glasses of water after waking up can help activate internal organs
• 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal can help digestion
• 1 glass of water before taking a bath or shower can help lower blood pressure
• 1 glass of water before going to bed can help avoid a stroke or heart attack


Whether they are true or not - it’s only water – it can only be good for you!
