Ipswich pub paying it forward

The team at the Commercial Hotel Redbank have put their heads together to find a way to bring the Ipswich community a bit closer together, while keeping isolated.

Owner Gerry Murphy said they thought they could make up batches of soup for those in need.

“We do things a bit differently to bigger pubs,” he said.

“We wanted to support the community and we were worried people might be too scared to go out and buy groceries, so we thought we would try making soup.

“We have been going for a couple of weeks now, we gave away 500 soups last week and 380 so far this week.”

Mr Murphy wanted to thank the Salvation Army who have been dropping off bread and vegetables to help keep them going.

They also had some of their own customers, Dave and Sumie Rogers, drop off a bag of potatoes and pumpkins from their own vege patch.

The Commercial Hotel Redbank is open seven days a week serving a full menu for lunch and dinner.

They also deliver from their bottle shop or you can call ahead for food and drink orders and pick up.
