Cheeky name helps bar­tenders raise aware­ness

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Kar­ratha’s Tam­brey Tav­ern is again run­ning a cam­paign with an U.G.L.Y name but a beau­ti­ful mes­sage.

Tam­brey bar­tenders Quinn An­der­son and Mairi MacColl have put their hands up to be lo­cal faces of the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion’s quirky fundrais­ing cam­paign for bar­tenders, with money go­ing to­wards ac­com­mo­da­tion for re­gional blood can­cer pa­tients who need treat­ment in the city.

The at­ten­tion-get­ting acro­nym stands for “un­der­stand­ing, gen­er­ous, like­able you”.

Tam­brey Tav­ern func­tions man­ager Sarah An­field said staff were aim­ing for a tar­get amount of $8000 to beat last year’s col­lec­tion of al­most $7000. Ms An­der­son, who was also part of the cam­paign last year, said the U.G.L.Y T-shirts she and Ms MacColl wore def­i­nitely got peo­ple’s at­ten­tion.

“A lot of them ask what U.G.L.Y means, so it’s a good way to get the mes­sage out,” she said. “It gets peo­ple talk­ing.” Tam­brey staff are do­nat­ing their tips to the cam­paign while it is run­ning, have cre­ated an U.G.L.Y cock­tail and will hold a num­ber of fundrais­ing events over com­ing weeks in­clud­ing a Hal­loween party this Satur­day.

Hamp­ton Har­bour Boat and Sail­ing Club and Sam­son Beach Tav­ern are also sup­port­ing U.G.L.Y.

The cam­paign runs for six weeks un­til Novem­ber 14.
