Bunnings to Support Emergency Services Volunteers

Residents Encouraged to Head to Their Local Bunnings to Support Emergency Services Volunteers Across the Country

Bunnings is gearing up for the Emergency Services Volunteers BBQ, taking place at all stores across the country on Saturday 20th of January 20 to raise much needed funds for local emergency services volunteers.

Bunnings New Zealand General Manager, Toby Lawrance, said the Emergency Services Volunteers BBQ is a great way for locals to get involved and show their appreciation for these everyday heroes and the important work they carry out on a day to day basis.

“It’s an opportunity for our team members and communities across the country to show support for their local volunteer emergency services. We encourage everyone to head down to Bunnings on Saturday the 20th of January to enjoy a sausage or make a donation,” said Toby.

Between 9am and 4pm, team members from every Bunnings store will be hosting a sausage sizzle with support from the emergency services volunteers. All proceeds go directly to local emergency services.

Please contact your local Bunnings for further details.
