The Gaffer Month 2020

October is here which means our favourite time of the year has arrived, The Gaffer Month!

The Gaffer Month is a month in which The Gaffer Shiraz helps us to raise money for cancer research. For every dozen of The Gaffer Shiraz sold during October, we donate the proceeds of one bottle to the Flinders Foundation, who are dedicated to supporting medical research and patient care across the Flinders medical precinct, and work tirelessly towards its motto of Prevent, Cure, Care.

For 14 years Mr. Riggs has been a corporate partner of the Flinders Foundation and I’m proud to announce we have donated over $155,000 during this time to help find the cure for cancer.

We began our relationship with the Flinders Foundation, through the suggestion of Kim Pilkington, who sadly lost her battle with cancer in 2012. It is only fitting that we chose to raise funds for the Flinders Foundation in October, Breast Cancer Awareness month.

This year we carry on with the artwork commissioned by artist Alison Turnbull. We now have this artwork across tote bags, which are available for sale on our site here.

This year, we would love to raise $15,000 to donate to The Flinders Foundation, and hope you can help us to reach this milestone. To encourage you we are offering a year’s worth of The Gaffer Shiraz to one lucky customer. All you need to do is purchase 12 x bottles or more of The Gaffer Shiraz during October, and you will automatically go in the running to win!

I will also be hosting a live tasting of “The Gaffer Through The Ages” on the last Thursday in October in which we will go through three vintages of The Gaffer Shiraz and I will answer any questions you may have. Stay tuned for more details!

Here’s cheers to finding a cure.

Ben (Mr.) Riggs.
