Solotel Group is raising a glass to help flood relief efforts. Until Sunday 10 April, Solotel will donate $1 from the sale of every schooner and pint of VB, Carlton Draught, Great Northern, Balter, 4 Pines, Peroni, Bulmers cider and many more to the Red Cross Flood Appeal.

Throughout the four weeks, all 25 of CUB’s draught beers and ciders available across Solotel Group’s 19 pubs and bars are part of the fundraising initiative. The pubs and bars joining in the project span the Sydney metro area. From the Golden Sheaf in Double Bay to Albion Hotel in Parramatta, The Clock in Surry Hills to The Bank in Newtown and The Sackville in Rozelle, Opera Bar and Barangaroo House in the CBD, and The Regent in Mascot to The Bridgeview in Willoughby.

The group’s restaurants are getting involved too. Between 18 March and 10 April, order the crispy calamari at North Bondi Fish; Barra-masalata at Chiswick Sydney; or any charcuterie at Chophouse Sydney and Solotel will donate this amount to the Red Cross Flood appeal, up to a total of $5,000 per venue. At Aria, customers can add a donation to their bill and Solotel will match donations up to a total of $5,000.

Elliot Solomon, CEO, Solotel Group says: “The powerful images of devastation and pain caused by the recent NSW and Queensland floods really impacted myself and the team, like many across the country. An appreciation for community is at the core of how we run our neighbourhood venues. So, to see scores of communities hurting deeply – well, we had to do something. We can’t all be on the ground to help but something as simple as buying a beer means that we can all still feel like we’re helping in some way.”
