We have opportunities for individuals, congregations, schools, workplaces and community groups to come together to support our work.
The Uniting East Burwood Volunteer Group, also known as The Sizzlers, hosts regular sausage sizzles at their local Bunnings to raise funds for Uniting.
The group have been organising the sausage sizzles, along with other small fundraisers, for over a decade.
In that time, they have raised more than $20,000 to contribute to the work of Uniting.
We recently provided them with an EFTPOS machine for their events.
“We were missing sales opportunities due to the rising number of people using card over cash,” says volunteer, Ron Porter.
“We’ve done a few fundraisers over the years.
“One of the first fundraising initiatives was collecting and selling aluminium cans.
“Then we moved on to the Bunnings sausage sizzle.
“It’s very rewarding to know the money is helping people in the local community.
“It’s also been a good way for our volunteers to come together, socialise and have a laugh.”
