Shoppers in Bunbury, Busselton and Manjimup Coles have banded together to raise more than $3300 in just five days to support Australian veterans struggling with injury or illness.

Coles Bunbury, Bunbury South and Australind were ranked among the most generous stores in WA helping contribute to more than $232,000 raised nationally by Coles and its customers.

Money was raised from customer donations and sales of Coles Bakery branded cookies and biscuits sold at Coles supermarkets from April 22 to April 26.

For every Coles Bakery branded cookies or biscuits sold, Coles donated 50 cents to the Bravery Trust.

The funds will enable Bravery Trust to support more than 150 Australian veterans who have an injury or illness as a result of their service as well as around 600 family members.
