If you need another excuse to grab a Bunnings sausage, here’s the best reason of them all.

Bunnings in NSW and the ACT are holding sausage sizzles on Friday 3 August, with all proceeds going to Buy a Bale, a campaign run by Rural Aid that focuses on delivering essentials to drought-affected farmers.

Parts of NSW and Queensland have been in the grip of drought for seven years, with 98% of NSW and about 66% of Queensland currently drought-affected.

The stores holding the Buy a Bale sausage sizzles on Friday are in Fyshwick, Tuggeranong, Gungahlin, Belconnen and Canberra Airport, from 9am to 4pm.
