New mobile BBQ hits Palmerston North

Westpac has launched their brand new mobile community BBQ in Palmerston North this week to help local community organisations with their fundraising efforts.

The trailer BBQ is free to hire and available for community groups across the lower North Island.

Westpac GM BusinessBank and Wealth, Simon Power, was the key speaker at the official launch event where around 100 customers, staff and local stakeholders tasted the very first sausages hot off the grill.

It is based on the very successful trailer BBQ Westpac has down in the South Island which has allowed hundreds of community groups to tow it to events in a variety of locations and raise much needed funds.

Built by a local Palmerston North company, Ashurst Engineering, it will be based in the student city.

Community organisations interested in hiring the mobile BBQ just need to speak to any of their local Westpac team who can arrange a booking.
