Penrith residents are being encouraged to download the Dine and Discover vouchers and get out and about to help stimulate the post-COVID-19 economy.
All NSW residents aged 18 and over can now apply for four $25 vouchers, worth $100 in total from the State Government to be used to support dining, arts and tourism businesses.
Each voucher can be used once, seven days a week, including public holidays and plenty of Penrith businesses including restaurants, cafes, pub, clubs, cinemas, and recreation experiences have signed up to the program.
Panthers Leagues Club is one of the many places excited to be taking part, with several of its venues eligible.
“Panthers is excited to be part of the program because it’s a great way to entice members of the community to come back out after such a challenging year with the assistance of the Government,” Panthers Leagues Club General Manager, Jason Stone said.
“The vouchers can be used at Kelly’s Brasserie, GRUB, Zen Noodle Bar, Rice Kid, iFLY, Cables Wake Park, Timezone and all Panthers owned bars.”
Members of the community can register for the vouchers on the Service NSW website and receive them on their Service NSW app or via email.
People can also apply by calling 13 77 88, or in person by visiting a Service NSW Centre.
Mr Stone said the whole process is extremely easy and that the initiative will benefit everyone greatly.
“When a customer chooses to redeem a voucher, they simply show our till operators and our team does the rest of the work,” he said.
“It’s great chance to come in and try some of the great restaurants and experiences that the club has to offer and we would like to congratulate the NSW Government on supporting the hospitality industry with this initiative during these tough times.”
The vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash or used for takeaway meals, alcohol, tobacco or gambling and are only valid to Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
