Officeworks has raised $13,345 dollars for the Royal Flying Doctor Service Launceston through its 2019 Round Up Campaign.
As part of the campaign, for the month of June shoppers at Officeworks Launceston were asked to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar in support of the service.
Officeworks Launceston store business manager Natasha Berggren said her team got to decide who they would support with the campaign and overwhelmingly chose the RFDS.
"The RFDS supports rural communities through healthcare but also education, which is not something people automatically think of," Ms Berggren said.
"During June we had so many customers sharing their emotional and touching stories about the support they'd received from the RFDS, it just really cemented the reasons why we chose them."
RFDS Tasmania chief executive John Kirwan said the service had been overwhelmed by the support of the staff and patrons of Officeworks through their generous donations.
"This innovative approach has greatly assisted our fundraising goals which ultimately helps the RFDS in Tasmania meet our vision of improving health outcomes for all Tasmanians, and in particular rural and remote Tasmanians," Mr Kirwan said.
"The funds raised through Officeworks will be put towards equipment and facilities for the aeromedical services and equipment and facilities for our mobile mental and dental health services.
"Examples of this include providing a mobile blood analyser for the plane, new dental x-ray equipment to support our mobile dental teams, and a new dental chair and associated installation costs for our fixed clinics."
Staff at Officeworks have been invited to tour the RFDS base at Western Junction later this month where they will make their official cheque presentation.
