The Bealey Hotel is been on the landscape of the Arthur’s Pass National Park in many forms since 1865. This version of the Bealey Hotel along with the owners and staff believe in giving back. This is where you will find just some of the ways we are doing that.
We live in the most beautiful part of Aotearoa, We need to help protect it.
The Bealey Hotel staff have set up the TBCC – “Team Bealey Charitable Committee”
We have set up a Committee of our staff, we fundraise, we support the community we donate funds to local and national charities. Each of the committee members donates to the committee fund from their own weekly wages. The Bealey Hotel supports the staff donations my matching their donation $ for $.
4 times per year the committee gets together and donates funds to deserving charities. In the last 6 months the committee have supported local and national charities to the value of over $3000
We have supported
And we are just getting started!!
The TBCC have adopted the section of State Highway 73 (The Great Alpine Highway) and regularly collect rubbish from the side of the road. Unfortunately, sometimes if feels like an exercise in futility. There are more cars and people traveling the road than we can possibly keep on top of the mountains of rubbish that seams to show up.
The team recently went over to Arthurs Pass and assisted the APWT build 120 predator traps for the area. These traps for fill a pivotal role in reducing the numbers of feral rats, stoats and ferrets that feed on our native birds. These traps will play a big part in reducing the predator numbers. The team, had a great time helping out, we put down our trays, knifes and toilets brushes for the day, and picked up hammers and drills. It was noisy, but a lot of fun.
