Barkly Square retailers band together to fight Motor Neurone Disease


Throughout every Sunday in October the team at Pure Poultry and Meatwell held a sausage sizzle to raise money and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease.

Brian Kane is former staff member at Pure Poultry and Meatwell. Unfortunately, Brian has been diagnosed with this incurable disease and the team wanted to assist him personally with a fund-raiser.

The fundraiser was exceptionally successful raising $5,500 over the 4 Sundays in October.

The public was very supportive with either a cash donation or buying a sausage. One lady even contributed $50 and others paid $20 for one sausage. The regular Barkly Square customers were pre empted throughout the week with some people putting off their shop days until the sausage sizzle Sunday.

A special thanks to Bakers Delight, Gangemi’s, Seafood Paradise, JLL , House and Bank of Melbourne whom all contributed toward the success each day with goods. Additionally, special thanks go out to everyone within Meatwell and Pure Poultry whom pulled together for a worthy cause donating their personal time.

Importantly, Brian Kane is very grateful that we raised awareness of Motor Neurone Disease and his wish’s are to hold one more next year in March or April where he personally can be involved with raising funds directly for MND.
