Bunnings helps Red Cross celebrate 100 years

BUNNINGS WAREHOUSE will be helping Red Cross celebrate 100 years by throwing a Fundraiser BBQ across the country this August.

Australian Red Cross CEO Robert Tickner welcomed the support of Bunnings, giving Australian communities across the country an opportunity to help Red Cross to continue its everyday work helping Australians in need.

“The Centenary Fundraiser BBQ is a great opportunity to recognise the contributions of Australians to the first one hundred years of Red Cross, raise much needed funds, and build community support to ensure we continue serving the Australian community for the next 100 years.


“We encourage everyone to head to their local Bunnings on Saturday 9 August to enjoy a sausage-sizzle while supporting our community programs helping Australians in need.

“Not only will Bunnings provide the venue for the Centenary Fundraiser BBQs nationally, they have also agreed to donate all the essential ingredients that’ll make the much loved Aussie snag – an estimated 100,000 sausages!

“Red Cross volunteers will be staffing every BBQ around the country, ready to chat to locals about the vital everyday work they do helping people in our communities, as well as celebrating 100 years of people helping people.

“We look forward to holding fundraising sausage sizzles and to showcasing the vital everyday work of Red Cross at Bunnings stores around Australia on Saturday 9 August, helping to build support for the years ahead,” said Robert Tickner.
