ANZAC Day was a huge day for Gladstone locals and some businesses, even pubs.

The Central Lane Hotel raised $1500 for the Gladstone RSL Sub-branch thanks to its staff and patrons.

Throughout the day staff called for donations, which were happily given to the non-profit RSL.

Gladstone RSL Sub-branch president Russell Tidd said his organisation did not receive large donations regularly.

"Primarily this will go towards paying one of our staff who works casual and looks after purchasing the badges," he said.

"Also it will go to a fund to build up so we can buy a block of dirt or property to walk into to have our own RSL Sub-branch building again."

Central Lane Hotel manager Colette Potter said staff contributed tips to the donation and patrons dropped money into the donation bucket to reach $1500.
