All of our stores in New Zealand are open and continue to have a comprehensive range of measures in place to keep team members and customers safe.
Bunnings is committed to participating in the communities in which we operate by contributing to local, regional and national causes, charities and organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Requests for hands-on support should be made in writing on the community or charitable organisation’s original letterhead, and sent to your nearest Bunnings store, to the attention of the Activities Organiser.
Apologies, our in-store activities are temporarily suspended, this includes Family Nights & D.I.Y Workshops.
Sausage Sizzles and Fundraising Opportunities
Bunnings’ community sausage sizzles returned to selected stores in October.
There are some changes to traditional processes, including a new layout that promotes physical distancing and increased personal hygiene processes:
• Separate ordering and pick-up points to allow for 1.5 metres’ physical distancing
• Increased cleaning processes and hygiene requirements
• Increased signage to guide customers
The sausage sizzles are an integral fundraiser and we’re really pleased to be bringing them back. We ask everyone to continue to be patient and respect the guidelines in place.
Community groups who would like to book a sausage sizzle, are encouraged to contact the Activities Organiser at their local Bunnings.
D.I.Y. Workshops and In-store Activities
Please contact the Activities Organiser at your local Bunnings store to discuss how the team might be able to support your community group.
In recognition of National Police Remembrance Day, 29th September, Bunnings will donate up to $30,000 to New Zealand Police Association Police Families Charitable Trust to support their important work.
Our stores conduct many of activities with local schools and kindergartens, including our Schools Sustainability Program, Grow Your Own gardening activities and a range of other initiatives.
Our support of local organisations and causes include Lions Clubs, Rotary, GirlGuiding, Scouts, The Salvation Army and Menz Shed. Throughout the year stores also completed many activities supporting local sporting groups.
Our team members actively support groups such as the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association (RSA). In particular, stores invite local groups in-store to raise funds through the sale of ANZAC poppies in April and November, as well as provide hands-on assistance such as maintaining memorials and shrines.
We have produced an annual Community Report Card since 2004 which provides detailed information on our ongoing community support and sustainability initiatives. The 2020 Community Report Card highlights our actions and achievements during the 2020 financial year.
