Lowest prices are really just the beginning for Pakenham Bunnings

We all know the famous jingle and seen the friendly faces on Bunnings’ ads. At Pakenham Bunnings, April Wilkinson brings that warm and welcoming presence to life for customers from Scope Pakenham Lifestyle Options.

Each month, people with disability supported by Scope attend free monthly DIY workshops. It’s an opportunity to build handy skills and also have fun in the local community.

Scope customer Emma enjoys attending Bunnings Pakenham. “I like the program because it is different and I learn”.

April’s can-do attitude and willingness to go the extra mile in running these workshops was recently acknowledged at Scope’s Annual Awards, where she received the ‘Do it together’ Community Award.

Scope General Manager Jenni Hendy acknowledges the important contribution April and the team at Bunnings Pakenham have on Scope customers.

“April takes the time to tailor the programs and activities to each person’s strength, interest and ability, so everyone is able to engage and be a part of the process. At Scope, we call this “See The Person.”

“Attending these workshops fills each person with a big sense of pride and achievement. At the end of each workshop, they take home something that they worked hard on and are always proud to show it off.

“Our customers love attending Bunnings and feel welcome and a part of their community.  The workshops provide a social experience as well as the hands on work”.
