They say 'winners are grinners'. And at last our pensioners have something to smile about. As business' around Australia answer our call to offer a helping hand... Here comes the week of the great give aways!!!
"Next week Monday to Friday Bakers Delight are participating in the Adopt a Pensioner program by donating bread in a range of stores across Australia in the last half hour of trade" says Simon from Bakers Delight.
Simon Baker from you guessed it - Bakers Delight is well - delighted to be part of our Adopt a Pensioner campaign. His store is just one of a select many, right across the country, taking part in next weeks donation program.
Nedal Choujaa, owner of The Clover Fish Shop in Modbury, is one Adelaide store happy to help our pensioners.
"Basically I'm giving free fish and chips to any old age pensioners for 8 weeks every Tuesday from 12.30 until 6pm."
Seeing his own grandparents struggle as pensioners urged Nedal to join our campaign.
Captain Dave Lazarus is lowering the gang plank offering his "Funboat" cruise free for the whole of next week to any pensioner who can make it down to his dock in Sydney. The laughs, a game of bingo, and an entertaining visit from a very suspicious looking Elvis, can raise a pretty mean appetite. Time for a quick pit stop to bring on the free lunch. All thanks to chicken shop The Roaming Bird.
While the government may have forgotten about the pensioners many of you have not. Since Today Tonight launched Adopt A Pensioner almost 6500 people are now registered to participate. For the rest of you - there's no time like the present.
Actor Henry Szeps may not be a pensioner but he is an old codger...well at least in his latest play - "Codgers".
Producer of the play - Grant Dodwell, thinks it's time tales about our elderly took centre stage. When Codgers premiers later this month - he feels it's fitting to make the first preview free to our pensioners.
As this Funboat docks and our revitalised pensioners pick up a bag of IGA groceries our call goes out to other business - step up to the challenge and lend a helping hand.
