Australia Day weekend support for SES

Visit your local Bunnings store on Saturday 28 January 2017 to help raise much-needed funds.

 

Communities across Victoria can once again help raise much needed funds for local volunteer emergency services through Bunnings’ annual ‘Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ’. Selected stores across the state will support SES units on Saturday 28 January 2017.

Head down to your local Bunnings Warehouse between 9am and 4pm, to buy a snag or make a donation.  Bunnings team members will be running sausage sizzles with support from local emergency SES or CFA services, with every cent raised going directly to support the local unit.

Victoria SES CEO, Stephen Griffin, said he is pleased that Bunnings is once again offering their support to emergency services through this great initiative. 

“Victoria SES extends a huge thanks to Bunnings who have always supported our volunteers and their local communities. This fundraiser is another shining example of that.”

Bunnings Warehouse Altona Complex Manager, Anita Cuic, said the Aussie Day Weekend Fundraiser BBQ is a way for team members and all Australians to show their appreciation for the great work done by local volunteer emergency services around the country. 

“The team is really excited to get behind the barbecue to help raise vital funds for our local SES,” said Anita. 

Family activities, fun games and entertainment will also be held throughout the day.
