“We are delighted to announce that Boomerang Bags Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest (BBTGHN) has received the support of the Hawks Nest Golf Club, the Tea Gardens Country Club and the Tea Gardens Hotel to host a plastic bag-free meat raffle in the last week of May,” Brooke Feltis told News Of The Area.
“We are encouraging punters to ‘bring their own bag’ to the raffles on Friday 25 May at the Golf and Country Clubs and on Monday 28 May at the Pub.”
As for those who don’t bring along their own alternative to plastic, Boomerang Bags is donating 10 bags to each venue to gift to the first 10 lucky prize winners on the night.
It’s a win, win for everyone.
The groups is also creating flyers for tables on the night informing patrons about Boomerang Bags and the need to reduce the use of single-use plastics.
“We are also encouraging everyone to treat themselves to an evening out on either the Friday or the Monday night to attend a raffle wearing their own Boomerang Bag to model to everyone.”
The meat raffles start from 5pm at the three venues.
As it heads into its second year Boomerang Bags continues to go from strength to strength recently holding another sewing bee in the Dolphin Room of the Tea Gardens Hotel.
Brooke said, “Like always, if you have an idea for BBTGHN please let us know by heading to our Facebook Page.”
“This is a community driven group, we would love to hear your thoughts.”
