Laird Hotel Melbourne, Australia



The Laird is passionate about raising funds for charities that directly impact our community.

Each year, our Laird Leathermen are asked to choose, and fundraise for a charity or cause that is close to their heart.

Since 2008 the guys have raised thousands of dollars for their chosen charities via BBQ’s, raffles and more. 

Laird Leatherman 2016 Brad Redmond is proudly fundraising for queerspace during his title year, by hosting The Laird's BBQ monthly on the 2nd Sunday plus some other great initiatives to be announced soon.
