Paul Newman's legacy a lifeline for Coffs Coast

THE legacy of legendary actor and philanthropist Paul Newman continues, with a local organisation benefiting from a donation that will help keep the charity's wheels turning.

Lifeline North Coast (NSW) has been gifted $29,000 by the Paul Newman Foundation to purchase a new vehicle to distribute stock and donations to op shops across the Coffs Coast.

Lifeline General Manager, Kathleen Lindsay, said the donation couldn't have come at a better time.

“The current truck we have is on its last legs and we're going to use the money to buy a new one that will be more fuel efficient,” Ms Lindsay said.

“And the money we raise using the vehicle goes directly to our telephone counselling service, to help us field the 10,000 calls we get at Lifeline.”

This year a total of 26 charities across Australia received donations from the Paul Newman Foundation, an organisation dedicated to honouring the late actor's generosity that resulted in all the profits from his salad dressings, pasta sauces and mayonnaises going to charity.

More than $12 million has been donated to Australian charities since the Paul Newman's Own product landed on supermarket shelves.
