Bunnings Is Cancelling Its Sausage Sizzles Around Australia Due To Coronavirus
Bunnings has made the difficult decision to cancel all sausage sizzles around Australia due to the coronavirus.
The sausage sizzle a popular event for people heading to the DIY superstore, but it seems like the spread of Covid-19 has caused the company to err on the side of caution rather than potentially expose anyone to the virus.
In a statement, Bunnings Managing Director Mike Schneider said: "Having listened closely to community groups, we've learned of the challenges many groups are facing finding volunteers and even supplies to sell given some of the reported challenges being faced by other retailers.
"We also want to make sure our team remain focused on helping customers to access the products they need.
"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.
"There's no doubt that our decision will disappoint some people in the community and we can't wait to bring this much-loved community program back."
The decision will come into effect from tomorrow.
