Chill to help the CFS
Every summer reveller worth their salt(ed rim) has their own unique, tried, tested, and verified hangover cure. For this writer, the magic pill is a mid-afternoon frozen Coke (AKA Froke) in the largest size available.
Up until this moment, the only good a Froke could really do was wash away the throbbing headache associated with a gin or beer too many on a Friday night, whilst also offering cool respite on a hot summer’s day.
From today though, Thursday, 9 January, right through until Wednesday, 15 January, convenience-store chain OTR will be donating 100 per cent of sales of their Chill range of frozen drinks to the CFS Foundation and the Salvation Army.
“We are saddened by the devastation the bushfires have had on the community, severely impacting the lives and livelihood of so many people in South Australia and across our beautiful country,” OTR Head of Community Partnerships, Joann Skene says.
“The CFS Foundation and Salvo’s provide essential support services for communities and we are so proud to work with these charities every day through our OTRGive program. During this time of bushfire crisis, we know they take on even more important role and it is critical that we support them.”
Head to your nearest OTR (the brand is ubiquitous) and fill up a cup of goodwill.
