Woolshed pitches in for the kids

29 Mar 2011

The Woolshed Pub will once again be taking part in the annual Good Friday Appeal by donating all food and beverage profits from the day to the cause.

Having taken part in the appeal last year after just opening the venue, manager Duncan Laidlaw hopes to make this year bigger and better.

“Last year we donated $5500 but we had little time to prepare, so this year we hope to raise a lot more,” Mr Laidlaw said.

Focused on making the day much more family-orientated than last year, The Woolshed Pub will have activities such as face painting, a petting zoo and a handballing competition set up for kids from 12 noon.

Mr Laidlaw said all the staff would be giving up their usual public holiday penalty rates and the venue would be covering the costs of all the activities to make sure that they could raise as much as possible for the appeal.

“We want people to come down and have some fun, have a feed and a drink and feel as though they are giving back at the same time.”

Mr Laidlaw said it was only natural for the pub to want to be a part of the appeal when the whole of Melbourne was behind it and in particular its neighbour Channel 7.

“Channel 7 is such a big part of the appeal and they suggested that we get involved originally and they’re also going to do a live-cross from the venue on the night,” Mr Laidlaw said.

The Good Friday Appeal began in 1931 and raises money for The Royal Children’s Hospital.
