COMMUNITY barbecues at Bunnings Warehouse are well-known in most communities for being a source of income for community organisations.
Red Cross hosted its nationwide centenary fundraiser barbecue this month and raised more than $455,000.
The event celebrated Red Cross' 100th birthday in Australia.
Bendigo residents raised more than $1900.
Bunnings Warehouse Bendigo complex manager Matt Henrich said team members were thrilled to support the Red Cross.
"The Red Cross Centenary fundraiser barbecue was a terrific way for Bunnings Warehouse Bendigo to show their appreciation for the wonderful work done by Red Cross volunteers," he said.
"(It allowed us) to help Red Cross continues its everyday work helping Australians in need."
Money raised from the centenary barbecues go towards the work of the Red Cross.
