#PutOutYourSnags: Bunnings Sausage Sizzles Cancelled

There a few traditions more paramount to the Aussie identity than sizzling of a hot barbeque outside your local hardware store. For decades, the Bunnings snag has been a symbol of community support, synonymous with the spirit of Australia, but sadly, on Tuesday afternoon, the grill fell silent; another casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bunnings Sausage Sizzle

“We absolutely understand the important role these sausage sizzles play for thousands of local community groups and charities and that finding alternative fundraising opportunities at short notice isn’t easy,” Bunnings managing director Mike Schneider reportedly told News.com.au.

To assist community groups who have sausage sizzles booked over the next month, our store teams will donate $500 gift cards to these local organisations to assist with their fundraising activities.

The Bunnings chief said the investment would cost the hardware icon around $1.2 million across Australia and New Zealand. Despite the Bunnings snag cancellation, stores are remaining open for the time being, with in-store activities put on hold until further notice.
