Bunnings head of sustainability and community, Sonya Rand, says the business supports the important work of Police Legacy charities across Australia and in 2020 decided to extend that support across the Tasman.
For two months each year, beginning on Police Remembrance Day, September 29, the household hardware chain sells a range of festive and decorative lighting, the proceeds of which are donated to police legacy trusts.
Association president Chris Cahill says this no-strings-attached donation is extremely generous and welcomed.
“Last year was challenging for everyone. On top of policing amid the uncertainties and disruptions of the Covid-19 pandemic, Australian and New Zealand police carried the extra burden of officers killed on duty.
“This donation from Bunnings recognises the role of police legacies and charities in helping officers and their families through tough times, and we greatly appreciate that,” he said.
