Nicolette Barbas South Western Times – June 4th 2020

Capel Vale Wines has continued to show its support for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis by donating 10 per cent of each Capel Vale case sold on its online shop throughout June to cystic fibrosis research.                 (Coupon Code CF2020).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the winery had to cancel this year’s annual Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball which raised $200,000 last year.

“This is a cause close to our hearts and this is a charity fuelled by a passionate team of volunteers who deserve our support to continue,” Capel Vale chief executive officer Simon Pratten said.

“It has been a decade since my sister Sally passed away from CF and the social isolation standards imposed by the government brought back memories of self-imposed isolation when I had a cold or the flu in order to protect her.

“We want to support the researchers who are working hard to improve lives and ultimately find a cure for this devastating disease.” Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West coordinator Taryn Barrett praised South West residents for their support.

“As a committee member and a mother of a child with CF, it’s a worry that significantly less funds will flow to Australian research projects this year,” she said.

“We are so incredibly grateful to Capel Vale Wines for continuing its ongoing support, especially during such a tough time.”
