Tavern comes to aid of those needing help
GIVING back to the community is what motivates the staff at Jubilee Pocket.
This is why a number of generous donations have been sent out to support the welfare of a variety of local people.
Jubilee Tavern general manager Craig Bradley said $4800 had been given to support a local man battling cancer who did not want to be named, while $2000 had gone to Garry Harris, who crashed his truck near Bowen, and $600 to Anthony Pendlebury, injured in a motorbike accident at Kelsey Creek.
“I know we are in a tourist area but we rely heavily on locals so that’s why we try to give back to the community whenever we can,” Mr Bradley said.
The Jubilee Tavern also donated $500 to the Airlie Beach RSL sub branch in recognition of the positive role the organisation serves.
Sub branch vice president Bill Rose said the money would support veteran families in need of help and meet the running costs of the RSL bus.
“We have been supported by the community and like to give back. You don’t have to wear a uniform to help,” Mr Rose said.
Mr Bradley said he appreciated the Airlie Beach RSL club using their bus for the Tavern’s Bullarama event in June.
