Hotel Steyne The Heart of the Community
Working tirelessly with a host of community groups, charities, not-for-profit organisations, sporting clubs, schools and individuals from the area, Hotel Steyne has shaped its position as a supporter and campaigner for the area raising more than $1,190,000.00.
COVERED. looks at its ever increasing number of beneficiaries, who are proud to say the iconic Manly venue is behind them.
Hotel Steyne may once have made news for the wrong reasons with rowdy, late night drinkers calling attention to the beachfront location. Now this popular seafront haunt has embraced the community and the same is happening in return.
“By being more involved in the community and supporting as many different organisations as possible, we are now seeing customers behaving differently and almost feeling a little ownership over the hotel because the hotel sponsors their group or has donated to a charity that they are involved in. People feel proud now to say they are involved with the Hotel Steyne,” explains its marketing manager, Eli Seddon.
The hotel has huge support for its nomination for the Australian Hotels Association ‘Heart of the Community Award’ to be announced in November.
The result of these new partnerships and the venue forging strong links with the Northern Beaches Council, Manly Chamber of Commerce and the local police, has been the creation of a safe, enjoyable, family-friendly environment that many locals now feel belongs to the community again.
“We are extremely proud of the changes and new perceptions of the hotel and look forward to working with the community for many years to come,” adds Eli.
Hotel Steyne is involved in community events in a multitude of ways from supplying BBQ’s, T-shirts or marquee’s. The hotel and its sponsors work hard in raising funds for various causes through meat raffles, cross promotion of events, groups and charities, attending events, sports games and raising money for charities. In fact, the well loved venue has contributed more than $63,000.00 to various organisations and staff from Hotel Steyne attend local football matches, community events, such as the Manly Food and Wine Festival and Manly Jazz Festival, take part in charity runs and host other numerous community events.
