BCF customers restoring Australia’s waterways

OzFish Unlimited 2 mins read
Lovers of fishing and the outdoors can head into their local BCF this weekend and donate their small change to OzFish to create big change for the future of fishing

The weekend of June 7 to 9 will see customers of one of Australia’s leading retailers make a significant contribution to the health of Australia’s waterways.

BCF’s ‘Small Change 4 Big Change’ weekend gives customers the opportunity to provide direct financial support to OzFish Unlimited, Australia’s only recreational fishing conservation charity in one massive donation drive.

OzFish mobilises Australia’s recreational fishers to lead the restoration of healthy habitat in creeks, rivers, lakes, and coastal waters in every state and territory.

OzFish and BCF have been partners since 2018 and in that time have forged a formidable partnership dedicated to restoring fish numbers by restoring their habitats.

Small Change 4 Big Change weekend makes it easy for BCF customers to support that objective – they can donate as much as they want at the checkout, with every cent pledged going straight to OzFish to deliver its projects across Australia.

Danielle West, General Manager of Marketing & eCommerce at BCF believes that this year’s event could be the biggest donation drive yet.

“This is the third year of our Small Change 4 Big Change weekend and every year the support from our customers and team continues to grow. We’re delighted to not only be providing financial support to OzFish through this event, but also to be raising awareness around the incredible work they deliver on waterways around Australia.”

“If you’re heading into your local BCF this weekend we strongly encourage you to donate to OzFish to support the future of fishing in Australia.”

In addition to Small Change 4 Big Change weekend, BCF accepts donations on behalf of OzFish every day of the year, in-store and online.

Craig Copeland, OzFish CEO, thanked BCF for its continued support and encouraged customers to not only get involved at the till but to become members of the OzFish community.

“Without the support of BCF, we wouldn’t be achieving what we are when it comes to establishing healthy ecosystems and better fishing habitat. Our volunteers are at the heart of this work and BCF are very much at the centre of the conservation community we’re building right across Australia.

“By giving your small change, you’ll be helping to make a big difference,” said Mr Copeland.

To donate to OzFish this weekend, head into any BCF – Boating, Camping, Fishing store and talk to the team behind the counter.
