On Saturday 24 January, Bunnings will once again support CFA and SES with an Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ

The Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ will be held at every Bunnings Warehouse nationwide to celebrate Australia Day and to thank all emergency services volunteers for the work they do in their local communities.

Bunnings Managing Director John Gillam said the Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ is a terrific way for team members and Aussies to show their appreciation for the wonderful work done by volunteer emergency support services.

“We’d love everyone to come and enjoy a sausage sizzle and help raise vital funds for the great work done by volunteer emergency support services across the Australia Day weekend,” Mr Gillam said.

CFA Chief Executive Officer Mick Bourke is pleased that Bunnings Warehouse has chosen to support CFA brigades with this initiative.

“These barbecues are a great way for residents to support a CFA brigade and get to know some of our dedicated members, while also learning a thing or two about how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from fire over summer,” he said.

Between 9am and 4pm, team members from your local Bunnings Warehouse will be running the BBQs with support from the local CFA and/or SES with every cent raised going directly to support the local CFA or/and SES.

Family activities and games will run in-store throughout the day and, where available, local CFA volunteers will provide important fire and emergency safety advice for kids and adults.

So visit your local Bunnings Warehouse this Saturday to support this fundraiser and treat yourself to a snag. While you’re there have a chat to our guys about fire safety information that could one day save your life!
