Coles launches new Mum’s Sause Pizza Sauce to support sick kids
Some budding young master chefs at Hospital School SA helped the WCH Foundation celebrate the launch of Coles’ new ‘Mum’s Sause’ Pizza Sauce.
The new sauce is the latest release in a range of ‘Mum’s Sause’ pasta sauces. They have been created by Coles to support children’s hospitals around Australia. 50 cents from each bottle or jar sold in South Australia and the Northern Territory will be donated to the WCH Foundation in support of the Curing Homesickness initiative to get kids home from hospital sooner.
The students were treated to a pizza making class, with the main ingredient, of course, being Mum’s Sause Pizza Sauce. Both patients and their siblings can attend Hospital School and it serves as a great way for the kids to have some normality amongst Hospital life.
Bryce (5) was diagnosed with Leukaemia in September last year. He has since relocated to Adelaide from Darwin with his family to receive specialist care at the WCH.
He needs fuel to keep his larger than life energy going throughout the day. So, he piled his pizza up high with Mum’s Sause Pizza Sauce, ham, cheese and salami!
Melody (8) attends Hospital School while her older sister is cared for at the Hospital. She said the Coles cooking class was really fun!
“My favourite part of the school day was making the pizza,” she said.
Coles Chief Sustainability, Property & Export Officer, Thinus Keevé, said, “We’re extremely proud of our partnerships with children’s hospitals across Australia.”
“Together with our customers, Coles has already raised over $1.8 million for Curing Homesickness. This has helped fund hospital upgrades, medical equipment and research as well as health specialists and therapists to support sick kids.”
Curing Homesickness is a national campaign that brings children’s hospital foundations and paediatric services from across Australia together to raise awareness and funds. Money raised through national partnerships like Coles go towards helping kids at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital get back home sooner.
WCH Foundation CEO, Jane Scotcher, said, “We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of Coles through the sale of the Mum’s Sause product range and the recent $2 donation card campaign. Funds previously raised through this partnership have supported the redevelopment of the Home Equipment Centre. This allows patients to continue their treatment at home and live their lives outside the walls of the Hospital.’’
The final verdict on Mum’s Sause Pizza Sauce? According to Melody, “It’s very good!”
