BBQ raises much needed funds

SAUSAGES sizzled for a good cause today.

A fundraising barbecue in Hobart saw $1666 raised in the wake of the recent Tasmanian bushfires.

It’s a great effort from Members and their friends and colleagues who came out enjoyed lunch and gave to the Unions’ Fire Appeal 2013.

Collection tins filled fast as CPSU staff cooked and served sausages and vegie burgers to hungry workers.


A number of businesses generously gave discounted goods for the cause, including:


  • Vermey’s Quality Meats (sausages)
  • Cripps Nubake (bread)
  • Woolworths New Town  (soft drink)
  • Countrywide Foodmarket (vegie burgers)
  • 911 Gasworks Bottleshop (ice)

See photos from the day here.

It’s not the last opportunity to support the Appeal. Another barbecue is on tomorrow in Burnie at the North West Regional Hospital. Click here for more information.


You can donate now on the Appeal’s website here.

The Appeal is registered with the Red Cross, with every cent going to the Tasmanian Bushfire Appeal, you can read more about it here.
