Cooking up a storm for our friends

DUBBO Officeworks has joined the bandwagon of organisations in the city helping Warrumbungle bushfire victims.

Manager Lesley Sauls said the store wanted to do its bit to make the lives of victims a little easier.

"The people have been fabulous here; no shortage of support," she said.

The store manager said she received the green light from head office to organise a sausage sizzle.

"I'm helping because I care, it's my store and my community," she said.

Ms Sauls said she personally knew a few people who had their homes ripped through in the fires.

"Yes, they are lucky to have their lives but they lost their homes which means they have nothing," she said.

"They are all putting a brave face on but when you speak to people one-on-one they break down into tears."

Ms Sauls said the store aimed to raise a minimum of $3000 over the two-week period.

She jokingly said all her staff had no option but to buy a sausage every day.

The sausage sizzle would run until the end of next week each day from 10am to 2pm.

"We will keep going because every little bit will make a big difference to them," she said.
