If you were planning on filling up your gas tank tonight, you may want to wait a bit longer before fuelling up.

Tomorrow, the annual ‘Fuel Good Day’ event returns to Victoria, giving Peninsula Co-op customers an opportunity to help a local charity and win a 2-night staycation just for fuelling up.

During ‘Fuel Good Day’, five cents from every litre of fuel sold at any of the Peninsulas Co-op’s 18 gas centres will be donated to Help Fill a Dream. 

One lucky person gassing up on Tuesday, September 21st will win a 2-night staycation courtesy of Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke.

Help Fill A Dream helps to provide financial assistance to support families with critically ill children so they can concentrate on health, care and recovery.

“We are so grateful for Fuel Good Day and the support it brings to Island families,” said Craig Smith, Executive Director at Help Fill A Dream.

“For 35 years, we have been making dreams come true for children with life-threatening / critical conditions. This has only been possible with the continued support of our community and incredible partners like Peninsula Co-op.”

Peninsula Co-op is a local co-operative with 18 gas centres with convenience stores located on Vancouver Island, with 12 of those just in the Greater Victoria region alone.

Since 1977, they’ve remained entirely locally owned and share profits with their 100,000 member-owners, community and staff.
