The Merchant Bar & Kitchen Gives a Big Hug to Plunket

The Merchant Bar & Kitchen Gives a Big Hug to Plunket

Albany’s favourite, The Merchant Bar & Kitchen swapped beer for bears last month in support of Plunket’s Annual Bear Hug Appeal.

The successful promotion at The Merchant Bar & Kitchen during March saw them raise over $3,000 for Plunket.

Funds were raised by donating 100% of the retail price of all kids meals purchased during the month of March, and by auctioning off a Karma Table on Trade Me. Locals jumped at the chance to support Plunket with just under 200 kids meals ordered during the month.

Gareth Hookham, Director of The Merchant Bar & Kitchen says that they enjoy getting involved in the local community. “Several of our staff are parents and have relied on the help on offer from Plunket, so when we heard about the Annual Bear Hug Appeal we wanted to get behind it and help them like they’ve helped so many in our community” says Hookham.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Plunket relies on fundraising activities such as their Annual Bear Hug Appeal to continue their good work in local communities such as Albany. The Annual Bear Hug Appeal raises funds for local Plunket services, including car seat loans, playgroups and Plunket facilities, and The Merchant Bar & Kitchen was pleased to be able to support such a worthwhile local organisation.
