Grab a snag at Bunnings, help bushfire victims

Need to do a Bunnings run?

If you get in before 4pm today, you can grab a sausage sizzle and help support bushfire victims.

Bunnings Chief Operating Officer Debbie Poole said all funds raised from sausage sizzles sold on Friday, January 24 would be donated to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

"Our thoughts are with the many communities across Australia experiencing these unprecedented bushfires," she said.

"The team at Bunnings want to provide further assistance to those affected by getting back behind the barbecues today to raise much-needed funds.

"Bunnings will provide all materials and team members will work the barbecues in every location."

Additionally, Bunnings is accepting monetary donations in-store and online and any donations made by team members will be matched.

Bunnings team members who volunteer with fire organisations are receiving paid leave for their life-saving efforts.

"We're currently supporting some of our team who have been directly impacted by the bushfires and our stores are assisting local organisations where they can," Ms Poole said.

"In the coming weeks our local store teams will be heading out into their communities to help with the recovery and rebuilding process."

Red Cross head of emergency services Andrew Coghlan said the organisation was grateful to have Bunnings on board for the fundraising event.

"These fires have been impacting on the lives of Australians for weeks on end," he said.

"We're in many of the affected communities right now and we will continue to support those impacted by the fires.

"It means a great deal to have Bunnings stand with us in helping disaster-affected people and their communities."
