Local icons serving your Bunnings snag this Saturday for FightMND

Bunnings is hosting a sausage sizzle fundraiser for FightMND this Saturday 28th May. Every cent raised will go towards Motor Neurone Disease (MND) research.

Bunnings, a proud supporter of FightMND since 2019, is hosting a sausage sizzle fundraiser at six selected stores across the country this Saturday 28 May, with all proceeds going towards finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Between 9am and 4pm on Saturday, drop by the Mile End Bunnings store to grab a snag and a Big Freeze 8 beanie to help raise awareness and support the cause, and you might even spot a familiar face behind the barbecue.

Local Aussie icons Chelsea Randall, I am Mr Luke, Kyle Chalmers and Madi Wilson will be rolling up their sleeves and serving up snags alongside FightMND volunteers at selected Bunnings stores.

Now in its eighth year, the annual FightMND Big Freeze campaign sets out to raise awareness and vital funds to find effective treatments and a cure for MND.

As MND takes away Neale’s ability to be the voice of the campaign, this year serves as an emotive and timely call to arms for all Australians to help lead the fight against this Beast of a disease – calling for the FightMND Army to ‘Beanie On, Play On.’

Dr Fiona McIntosh, CEO FightMND said, “We know it will take people to defeat this beast and it’s only thanks to the generosity of our supporters and committed partners like Bunnings, that we are able to make a real impact for people living with MND.

“Every beanie sold takes us closer to a cure and helps give hope to people with MND – hope that one day, there will be effective treatments or a cure for this beast of a disease. When you put on a Big Freeze beanie, you’re stepping up and playing on for Neale and everyone that has been diagnosed with MND,” Dr McIntosh said.

Bunnings Director of Operations, Ryan Baker, said that Bunnings is proud to be a part of the FightMND Army for the fourth year running.

“Our team and customers continue to get behind the campaign year after year, and I can’t think of a better pairing coming into the colder weather than a snag and FightMND beanie that will help raise important funds in their efforts to find a cure for this heartbreaking disease,” Mr Baker said.

Those who want to get behind the cause but can’t make it on the day can pick up the Big Freeze 8 beanie at any Bunnings store and trade centre across Australia, from now until Tuesday 21 June 2022, or online.

The Big Freeze 8 Beanies are $25 each and all funds raised will go towards helping to raise
awareness and fund research into finding effective treatments and a cure for the beast that is MND.

This year, Bunnings is excited to be committing to a three-year partnership with FightMND to support the Big Freeze campaign all the way through to 2024. To find out more about Bunnings partnership with FightMND, visit: National Community Support – Bunnings Australia.
