The coveted Bunnings sausage sizzle has returned to three states this weekend past, after being shut down due to the covid-19 pandemic. Bunnings stores in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia will be allowed to fire up the barbie again and resume community fundraising efforts for charities in need.
Any groups wanting to fundraise with a Bunnings sausage sizzle are required to undergo strict COVID-19 safety training
to ensure physical distancing and correct hygiene measures are enforced, Bunnings Chief Operating Officer Deb Poole said.
“While our community groups are taking a number of extra precautions, what hasn’t changed is the great feeling of supporting a local community group and the unmistakable taste of an Aussie sausage, bread and sauce,” Ms Poole said in a statement.
Over 200 charity groups are booked for barbecues this weekend across Queensland, SA and WA.
Several changes have been implemented to ensure the safety of shoppers keen for a snag.
There will be a separate order and pick-up points to ensure 1.5-metre physical distancing is adhered to.
Additional staff and signage will be on hand to guide shoppers around the sausage sizzle stations and extensive cleaning will be done to meet additional hygiene requirements.
Get down to your local Bunnings for a sausage and show your support for the local charities.
