15 June 2020: Social distancing restrictions have meant Australians have gone without many of our favourite things recently including the much-loved weekend sausage sizzle at Bunnings.
Australia’s largest service organisation, Lions Australia also has a longstanding reputation for hosting some of the country’s best sausage sizzles including at Bunnings stores around the nation.

Bunnings has announced it will be providing $50,000 to Lions Australia and NZ$20,000 to Lions Clubs in New Zealand.
“Bunnings is very pleased to donate $50,000 to Lions Australia to support its vital work in the community.
