The retailer raised over $100,000 as part of its sponsorship in just seven months after BCF signed a community partnership agreement with the volunteer organisation.

The funds were raised through BCF's in-store 'round up' initiative which enables customers to round-up their purchase price to an even dollar figure or to any value they nominate – providing a donation to the AVCG.
