Pub to donate cash to appeal

CHINDERAH Tavern has announced they will dedicate their Australia Day festivities to Australia’s flood victims.

Musician Dave Tonks provides live entertainment at the tavern and suggested the idea to the tavern’s licensee.

“I’m originally from Brisbane myself. I came here in 1999,” he said.

“My little girl Hayley turned four on January 11, the same day information came on TV about the four-year-old boy who died in floodwaters.

“That kind of thing just makes you want to do something.”

Mr Tonks said proceeds from raffles on the day plus any donations would be given to flood relief appeals.

“There will be plenty of raffles and cups and hats being passed around for donations,” he said.

“It should be a big afternoon; hopefully there will be a lot of people there.”

The tavern is also looking into sourcing a trailer for donated goods.
