Bunnings Warehouse is supercharging its usual sausage sizzle, to support a community of Aussies doing it pretty tough.
Next Friday, August 10, all of the hardware giant's Queensland stores will host a special pre-weekend edition of their legendary snag sessions, raising coin for the Buy A Bale initiative, supporting drought-affected farmers.
The initiative, part of the charity Rural Aid, lets you buy essentials — such as, yes, hay, as well as water, diesel and hampers — for farmers doing it rough. Which a lot of farmers are. Some areas of the country have been struggling with a years-long drought, and, more recently, farmers have been dealt an "unforgivingly dry winter".
All of the day's sausage profits will go towards helping struggling farming families across Australia, at a time when bushfires, a lack of rain and changes to live exports have made life on the land seriously hard. Grab a snag in bread and show them some love.
Buy a Bale sausage sizzles will run from 9am–4pm across all Bunnings Warehouses in Qld.
