Coles and Woolwoorths may be bigger, but when it came to helping out Wandering Warriors during this year’s Mega-Challenge, it was IGA, with its independent owners and managers who rose to the occasion. We are deeply in their debt because the in-kind donations by IGA meant more of the funds raised went to our charity partners. Gaurav Bansal of the Bansal Group and his IGA Brassall store were with us from the beginning with food. Along the way, it was the IGA stores in Armidale, Muswellbrook, Bathurst and Booroowa that kept us replenished. Can’t thank IGA enough.
