Bunnings Sausage Sizzles Suspended
Bunnings has suspended all Sausage Sizzles
It says the “difficult” decision was made in response to shortages of supplies caused by panic buying nationwide.
“Having listened closely to community groups, we’ve learned of the challenges many groups are facing finding volunteers and even supplies to sell given some of the reported challenges being faced by other retailers,” Bunnings Managing Director Mike Schneider said.
“We absolutely understand the important role these sausage sizzles play for thousands of local community groups and charities and that finding alternative fundraising opportunities at short notice isn’t easy.”
The store will donate $500 gift cards to community groups whose sausage sizzles will be cancelled over the next month.
“There’s no doubt that our decision will disappoint some people in the community and we can’t wait to bring this much-loved community program back.”
Bunnings will also be cancelling all other planned in store activities until further notice, including its Easter and Mother’s Day Family Nights, school holiday workshops and trade breakfasts.
