Bunnings BBQ for farmers results

The figures are in, and sausage sanger lovers in this region have raised more than $10,500 for drought relief by enjoying a Bunnings barbecue.

Tamworth treated itself to $5904 worth, Armidale ate $3391 worth and Inverell ingested $1312 worth sizzling sausage.

Across all stores in NSW and the ACT, which took part on Friday of last week, more than $570,000 was raised for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale.

That money will help drought-affected families and communities, by providing livestock feed and household essentials.

Bunnings chief operating officer Debbie Poole said drought was “an issue that’s important to our team and our customers”.

“Many of our stores are in rural and regional areas and, as part of those communities, we wanted to help.”

She said the response had been “overwhelming”.

All other states and territories are hosting their sausage sizzles today.
