Customers and staff at Grill’d restaurants in Sydney’s Central Business District have thrown their support behind efforts to improve access to healthcare in the Australian Outback as part of the local matters initiative.

Using tokens provided each time a meal is purchased, customers at four Grill’d CBD restaurants chose the Royal Flying Doctor Service South Eastern (RFDS SE) Section as their charity of choice to receive donations from Grill’d recently.

“We’d like to thank the Grill’d customers and teams at World Square, Harbourside, Westfield Sydney and Galeries for choosing to support our work,” said Allison Reid, Senior Development Coordinator at the RFDS SE Section.

“It’s encouraging to see people in the city giving back to people in the rural and remote parts of our great country.

“We welcome any opportunity to partners with businesses big or small and thank Grill’d for giving back to the community.”

Allison, who is part of the RFDS SE Section’s Marketing and Fundraising team based in the Sydney CBD, visited Grill’d Galeries this week to pick up a cheque for $1,000.

“Every donation we receive helps Australians in the Outback get access to critical emergency and primary healthcare services like oral and mental healthcare,” Allison explained.

“We are not-for-profit organisation that relies on community support from individuals and businesses like Grill’d.

“We appreciate any donation - big or small - as every dollar helps our talented teams of doctors, engineers, nurses and pilots improve health outcomes in the bush.”
