SHEPPARTON locals will once again have the chance to help raise much needed funds through the Bunnings’ annual Emergency Services Volunteers Barbeque, taking place this Saturday, January 20.

The barbeque will run from 9am until 4pm, visitors can purchase a ‘snag’ or make a donation, with all funds raised going directly to support the Kialla Fire Brigade.

CFA chief officer, Steve Warrington said he is always excited for this time of year to roll around as it’s great to see the community come together to help support the emergency services.

“Fire and emergency services play a crucial role in our community during fire season and throughout the year.

“We would like to thank Bunnings and their customers for their ongoing support and for providing CFA with an opportunity to support our volunteers. Their resilience, team work and dedication to protect lives and property across the community is invaluable.”

Shepparton Bunnings Warehouse complex manager, Deb Thompson said, “The team is looking forward to manning the BBQ and doing their bit to help raise funds and awareness at such a critical time of year for CFA.”
