Everyone loves a good doughnut, and this weekend you can enjoy one – or several! – knowing that they’re contributing to a good cause.

Walker’s Doughnuts Fountain Gate will be raising funds this weekend to support the family of a Narre Warren man who received a life-threatening electric shock earlier this month.

Bruce Stevens was injured in a worksite accident in Pakenham on Monday 3 May and taken to the Alfred Hospital.

Walker’s Doughnuts Fountain Gate owner David Lock said his son plays footy with Mr Stevens’ son, and when he learned of the accident he was determined to do something to help.

“We try and do as much as we can for local communities – so we thought, why not do something to help raise money,” he said.

Over the weekend of Saturday 29-Sunday 30 May, $5 from every six-pack of doughnuts will be donated to the family to help them through this tough time.

Mr Lock said customers can choose any six doughnuts for $20, with the money raised donated after the weekend.

Speaking of Mr Stevens, Mr Lock said he wishes him and his family well.

“We hope he has a speedy recovery and is back out there as soon as he can be,” he said.

Walker’s Doughnuts Fountain Gate is located at Kiosk 112, Westfield Fountain Gate Shopping Centre and is open 9am-5pm Saturday, and 10am-5pm Sunday.
