At Hinkler Central, we value our place in the region’s community and take pride in giving back to the community that has made our centre so successful. As a result, we spend a significant amount each year sponsoring and supporting local events and community groups.
Some of the community groups we support include:
- Bundaberg North Lions Club
- Bundaberg PCYC
- Bundaberg RSL
- Neighbourhood Watch
- Anglican Parish of Bundaberg
The Little Community Pantry
Hinkler Central is aiming to reduce hunger in the Bundaberg region by launching its Community Food Pantry initiative for distribution to those in need.
Delivered in partnership with the Anglican Parish of Bundaberg’s Dorcas Society, the Centre will be asking customers to collect extra items during their shop, or donate surplus non-perishable foods from home to the pop up pantry.
The variety of food items wanted includes canned vegetables or fruit, long-life products, canned protein foods and tea/coffee.
Dorcas Emergency Relief provides food for those needing support with basic grocery items. The Emergency Relief team operates four days per week and typically supports 40 people each week.
