Raising Funds for the Bushfire Appeal

Hi All,
Today at my Bunnings Store we had a sausage sizzle to raise funds for the Bushfire Appeal, which we will be doing all throught the week. Lots of people had horror stories about the fires. Those people directly affected were able to take emergency supplies such as torches, batteries, tarps and gloves etc... We donated many barbeques, to the Whittlesea and Kinglake areas. The death toll had reached 130, with over 700 houses being destroyed. Communtities have been shattered and some are non existent, it makes me proud to work for a company that really pulls together to help our surrounding communitities.

Here is a screen capture from the channel nine news of Joscelyn and I (I am the wind blown one) helping out on the barbeque. Phil (not in frame) was cooking the sausages.

Thanks for everyone that helped and donated money for this appeal :)
Its great to work together for a worthy cause!

Thanks and Cheers
