Tav­ern comes to aid of those need­ing help

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.
