Kinder shows kindness to Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue

Confectionery company Ferrero, proves their kindness, that sits in their product lines name Kinder, by making a vital contribution to Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue.

The contribution will support the rehabilitation of native animals in bushfire-affected areas of the Hunter Valley region.

Ferrero’s $30,000 donation made in Kinder’s name will fund a new hospital facility equipped with specialised surgical equipment and three Intensive Care Units. Improvements mean Cedar Creek’s team can continue to provide a critical service for local animals; expanding its recovery program for injured or displaced wombats and increasing capacity for other vulnerable wildlife.

“Kinder’s generous donation means so much to us here at Cedar Creek,” says founder of Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue, Roz Holme.

“Their support means we can start work on a new hospital facility that will allow us to save more wombats and injured animals.”

The contribution is part of Kinder’s ongoing partnership with the Australian Wildlife Society which has delivered more than $100,000 in vital funds to support communities across Australia and New Zealand.

In 2019 alone, Kinder helped Lismore’s Friends of the Koala, assisted Wombats SA’s work to protect the southern hairy-nosed wombat and funded conservation programs for New Zealand’s iconic kiwi, as well as raising much needed awareness for endangered tree kangaroos in Queensland.

“Kinder’s Natoons range aims to promote awareness and education for endangered animals through play,” says Head of Brand for Kinder, Marta Bako.

“We are incredibly proud of our partnership with AWS which allows us to support community groups like Cedar Creek to protect Australia’s unique wildlife.”

To celebrate the partnership with AWS, Kinder Surprise is giving away 1500 limited edition Natoons Adventure boardgames. Until 31 July, parents can enter for a chance to win one of 50 Natoons game every day.
