Alistair Flower, the owner of Flower Hotels on the Mid North Coast, has introduced a fundraising initiative to help assist with Flood Relief for local residents.

The NSW Government is rolling out Dine & Discover vouchers, with four $25 vouchers for each adult in the state to aid the hospitality and tourism sectors in their COVID-19 recovery. The vouchers are intended for food and entertainment services from COVID-safe registered businesses.

Now Flower is encouraging patrons to redeem their $25 voucher at any Flower Hotel venue and in turn the entire $25 will be donated to assist local Flood Relief efforts.

“Residents are still stranded in the Port Macquarie North Shore & Telegraph Point, and areas around Beechwood have been without power for days, not to mention the huge clean up that is to come,” said Flower

“Dine & Discover was a wonderful initiative from the NSW Government to look after our Industry, but there are people in our community at the moment that need this money more.”

Flower Hotels has six venues located on the Mid North Coast, when redeeming to donate your $25 voucher, the entire amount will be passed on to aid Flood Relief.

Flower added: “I’ll be shouting a share plate or a drink to those who choose to donate to this very worthy cause. It’s an easy way for the wider community to assist in the rebuilding of our region, we are hoping that other publicans in NSW jump on board and will follow suit”

Any person over the age of 18 living in NSW can apply for the Dine & Discover vouchers by downloading and applying through the Service NSW app, and they can be donated at any of the Flower Hotels Venues:

  • Settlers Inn Hotel, 101 Hastings River Drive, Port Macquarie
  • Lake Cathie Tavern, 1609 Ocean Drive, Lake Cathie
  • Hastings Hotel, 12 High Street Wauchope
  • Beechwood Hotel, 735 Beechwood Road, Beechwood
  • Fernhill Tavern, 4 Jindalee Road, Port Macquarie
  • Little Shack, 1 Munster Street, Port Macquarie
