Sharing the inspiring initiative on Facebook, the pub expressed, "After a heartfelt conversation with a struggling truck driver, managing a mere $200 for a journey from Townsville to Perth and back, we decided to take action. To all drivers facing financial constraints during a week on the road, simply grab a docket from our board and present it at the bar. We'll ensure you are well-fed and hydrated. When you find yourself in a better situation, pay it forward and extend the kindness to someone else."
