We are looking for volunteers to help out at the BBQ stalls which will coincide with Parent to Parent’s SafeSquares event. The concept for SafeSquares springs from Kiwi grassroots, where farms had designated safe spots for kids to stand when there were tractors and vehicles operating nearby, or stock passing. These spots were usually marked by a paver.
We’ve adapted it for urban kids too – particularly in light of toddlers tragically run over in their own driveways. It’s also useful for older kids who are neurodiverse or have a disability.
Hosted by Bunnings nationwide, families will have the chance to decorate their own free SafeSquares paver and take it home.
We need volunteers up and down the country to run the BBQ stalls from 9am to 3pm.
Numbers of Volunteers for EACH BBQ at EACH STORE
1-2 volunteers for handling money
1-2 volunteers for preparing and cooking the sausages and onions
1-2 people for preparing the bread and serving the customers
Reliability - we understand that things happen on the day and you may not be able to attend but we are running this event nationwide and need to know that the BBQs at each of the stores are staffed. Punctuality, positivity, honesty (handling money). Friendly and welcoming demeanor. Ability to cook at a fixed-height BBQ. First Aid certificate would be useful but not essential.
8.45am - 12noon, or 11.45am - 3pm, or Full Shift of 8.45am to 3pm
