The Carrick Inn and Hotel, together with the support from the Meander Valley community, is raising the bar when it comes to supporting those living with blood cancer.
The local has been raising money for the U.G.L.Y (understanding generous likeable you) Bartender campaign: an initiative that helps regional families needing to relocate for blood cancer treatment receive free accommodation.
Carrick Inn landlady Isabel Gillane said the idea to support the cause came from staff member Kellie Duncan.
"Lots of local businesses have been really generous," Ms Gillane said.
"The public have also been so generous, everyone's really supported us. It's been wonderful."
The initial fundraising target of $1000 has more than doubled through raffles and draws organised by the business.
