Care for the Community

Our purpose is to create delight every day. We believe that when you have the right attitude anything can be achieved and we’re passionate about working with likeminded partners that care for our communities, as well as participating in events that are aligned with our values.

Barefoot Cinemas

We’re so excited to be joining the Barefoot Cinema family this summer 2018/19 in Victoria. We’ll be delighting everyone who visits with amazing samples and photo-worthy opportunities from December 26th when the season starts. Expect amazing films at world class locations, across the Mornington Peninsula and at Rippon Lea Estate, Elsternwick.

We hope to see you there, grab your tickets from the Barefoot Cinema website.

One Girl

Can you believe that around the world there are more than 60 million people who are being denied an opportunity to achieve their full potential, simply because they were born a girl? That there are over 60 million girls who are not in school? Imagine if you could help educate and change the life of just one girl? Well now you can, through our exciting partnership with One Girl.

In 2017, Carman’s Dollar for Dollar Day, during One Girl’s Do It In A Dress campaign, raised $69,096 – enough to send 230 girls to school for an entire year!

Breast Cancer Network Australia

We are so privileged to run the annual Carman’s Women’s Fun Run, in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA.)

Whether you walk, run or just have fun, the Carman’s Women’s Fun Run is about getting together with the special ladies in your life and having a great day. This is truly an amazing event to support a cause that is close to so many hearts and help BCNA continue to support affected women and men through their tremendous work.

This year, more than 17,500 Australians heard the terrifying words “you have breast cancer” – and thousands more were impacted. BCNA helps to make a huge difference to those diagnosed and their families by providing the very best information, support and care. If you or someone you know needs support, link in with BCNA here.

Bowel Cancer Australia

We love our families as much as you love yours, which is why we’re proud to support families affected by bowel cancer. We’re humbled to be able to sponsor Bowel Cancer Australia and their Bowel Care Nutritionist and Eating Well resources. They provide nutritional guidance and practical tips to patients, their families and friends. With 1 in 13 Australians being diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime, we want to generate as much awareness as possible for Bowel Cancer Australia.

Did you know that 90% of cases can be successfully treated if caught in time?


It’s a largely a hidden social problem that there is a hunger problem in Australia. Each year two million people rely on food relief; around half of them are children. That’s 1 in every 10 Australians in need.

Last year alone Foodbank provided enough food for over 40 million meals. They act as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. They rescue surplus food and groceries from the country’s farmers, manufacturers and retailers which include product that is out of specification, close to date code, has incorrect labelling or damaged packaging, as well as excess stock and deleted lines. Without Foodbank much of this food would simply go to landfill.

Since working with Foodbank, Carman’s has been honoured to be able to donate over 3,000 kilograms of food; the equivalent of more than 6,000 meals for those in need across Victoria.
