Buy it for the kids!

3 March 2015





Throw your support behind the Sub for a Cause in-store charity day by visiting a Subway® Restaurant in Queensland on Saturday 14 March 2015 to help aid Australian charity Act for Kids’ mission in conquering child abuse and neglect.

For the second year running, participating Subway® Restaurants across regional Queensland* will donate $1 from every Subway Six-Inch® Sub or Subway Footlong® Sub sold on the day. The initiative will run in restaurants from Cairns down through to the Sunshine Coast and out to Toowoomba.

Act for Kids CEO, Dr Neil Carrington, said last year Subway® Restaurants raised over $20,000 on the day and the community support was truly inspiring.

“Subway® Restaurants have supported Act for Kids for over five years now, and since then they have raised almost $500,000 through collection boxes across the state. Now they’re stepping up to the plate once again to help raise funds to give abused and neglected kids a second chance at childhood.

“We were inspired by the amount of people who got behind Sub for a Cause last year. 2014 was a big year for Act for Kids, and thanks to the ongoing support from Subway® Restaurants, we opened our first Child and Family Centre of Excellence in Townsville and an Integrated Therapy Program in Ipswich.

“We now have 17 centres across Queensland, with several new community-based services commencing on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Gympie, providing frontline assistance and support to thousands of families.

“Buy a Sub at your local Regional Queensland Subway® Restaurant on Saturday 14 March, and help make a real difference to the lives of Queenslanders. Thanks to the ongoing support of many Subway® franchisees we’re able to give more kids and families the wrap-around support they need to overcome their challenges,” Dr Carrington said.

Lesley Dobson, Development Agent at Subway® Systems Australia, said following the success of Sub for a Cause last year, 2015 promises to be bigger and better.

“Subway® restaurants across regional Queensland are participating in this fantastic fundraising event that helps kids in need. We encourage Queenslanders to head down to their local Subway® restaurant on 14 March and purchase their favourite Sub for a very good cause,” Ms Dobson said.

*Areas include Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Toowoomba, Gladstone, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg, Wide Bay and Gympie.
