A generous business venture is giving back to the community by providing free beverages to the region’s mass of volunteers.

Since its opening in December, Dunsborough Coffee Co has maintained this pledge to provide free coffee every Sunday and director Kavan Hynd said engagement from local volunteers and visitors had been “fantastic”.

“We only opened in Dunsborough two months ago but our idea was born during the uncertainty of things in March last year,” he said.

“A lot of local businesses were asking for the community’s help and so we did our best to support them by eating and drinking out as much as we could afford,” Mr Hynd said.

“It gave us the motivation to open somewhere that would give back to the town and hopefully keep that local energy going. We use only local businesses and produce in everything we do,” he said.

After his short stint in the British Army in 2012, Mr Hynd said he was thankful for the sacrifices veterans and volunteers made every day and would continue to give back to them.

“Although it is a very small contribution, we decided before our doors were even open that they would have their own day each week where they could come drink coffee and chat for free,” he said.

Mr Hynd said he wanted to eventually use this venture to provide free coffee for volunteers every day and to help fundraise for local projects and initiatives in Dunsborough. “It has been brilliant to receive such a warm response and we only wish we could extend the offer to all of our local heroes,” he said.
