Shop with Ritchies/IGA.
You can donate 0.5% of your shopping at Ritchies/IGA stores to the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater. Just join the Ritchies Card loyalty program  by either using a smart phone and downloading the Ritchies Card App from the App store or Google Play, or by going online to using a tablet or desk top computer.
You can then pick up a physical card available from IGS’s friendly cashiers in-store. You then link the card to your online account. Once you have set up your account  you can nominate the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater as the organisation to receive the donation amount.

IGA/Richies have donated over $50,000,000 to clubs, schools and charities. Thank you!

Web site development

The Friends would like to acknowledge the contribution, commitment and generosity of the people who have created and maintained our web presence over many years. Gaye Gadsden, our first Coordinator, first established our web presence through Vicnet. This was a cost-free start to getting online. Thank you Gaye. Bradley Jarvis then volunteered to research, construct and update an independently managed website presence from 2005-January 2011. Thank you Brad.

In 2010 the Friends developed and launched a new website, with the aim of being able to manage it internally. We thank Sue and Bruce Tardif for the work they did to research, establish and maintain the site from Sept 2010-Aug 2013.

In 2018 the Friends web site was redeveloped by Adam Fletcher of Digitalseen with Stephen Garth acting as the Friends Webmaster.
