Aside from the funds raised, there are lots of other benefits to be gained for the NOW group and its members from participating in these days when serve the community

The next Bunnings date is on the 22nd March and this is the only other thing we have locked- in at this stage. We are doing something at the annual Madeleine Hicks Easter Egg Hunt as well as a organising a social event in the next two months but thethe details are not finalised. We will also have 3 more Sausage Sizzle dates at Bunnings to announce shortly shortly.

Our first sausage sizzle at Bunnings Stafford was a great success with fundraising committee member Terry Harrison reporting that the volunteers on the day sold about 425 sausages and 145 drinks. The profit was $634.10 that will go to our chosen charity. We had some stock left over to use next time so the the profits should be even higher.
