Lakelands store manager John Bell said he encouraged the community to get involved and throw their support behind the community group of their choice.

“The group to win the top prize is now in the hands of our customers, who have a unique chance to make a positive impact in their community,” he said.

“We’re excited to introduce this initiative to our store and to see locals supporting locals – everyone’s a winner.”

Each community group will decide how to use their vouchers, with some indicating they would use the funds to purchase supplies or provide support to disadvantaged families.

Coles Lakelands is also supporting local kids with free fruit at the new WestSwim pool, as well as providing free fruit for students at Singleton Primary School and Lakelands Primary School.

The challenge display units are placed in front of the Coles Lakelands store entrance.

For every $30 spent, customers will receive a token which they can place in one of the three display units.
