A long time stalwart of both Springs Tavern & the hospitality industry, Niall Burke, is finally taking his long service leave! A long time believer in the mental health in the work place, Niall is walking the Bibbulmun Track end to end, in support of Beyond Blue. Starting on the 28th of August, the full 1003km- Albany to Kalamunda, will be walked over 45 days (rain, hail or shine!), utilizing camping & bibb shelters along the way.
Hoping to raise $10,000, we would appreciate the showing of your support for this worthy cause!

Why support Beyond Blue?
While we all know how important mental health is, the external pressures upon us, as a people, have almost tripled recently. From the Australian bushfires over summer to the COVID outbreak, the community has been in a heightened state of anxiety and struggling to manage. From pre-existing anxiety & mental health issues, quarantine fears, the employment downturn (especially prevalent in the hospitality industry) though to front line workers (doctors & nurses), the mental health of Australia has taken a beating.

August + September 2019
For the months of August & September, for every $26 chicken parmigiana sold, the Springs Tavern will donate $1 toward Rural Aid to help the still drought stricken farmers of Australia! The amount of rain Perth has just had can make the drought conditions of the wheatbelt & eastern states seem very far away. On the bar top, there will be bright green “Rural Aid” donation barrels. The amazing staff have all agreed that all tips are to go in the barrel to help those doing it tough at the moment! To keep this cause fresh in the public’s mind, all floor staff will be wearing flannel in true famer style! So come on down, drop a gold coin in the barrel, buy a parmi and show off your most eyebrow raising flanno!
If you know of a cause that affects Bennett Springs or the wider community, please come in & let us know. We love to help in our community. In an age where people are becoming more isolated, yet the housing density is rising, we know that the sense of community is vitally important for mental health, community support networks and helping local small business.
