Amidst another crippling lockdown for small businesses, three Yarra Valley restaurants have come together to help those sleeping rough this winter. Across the month of June, Seville’s Branded Burgers and Bar, Kilsyth’s Just Cruize-In Diner and Healesville’s My Little Kitchen have teamed up to raise funds to purchase backpack beds for those in need across the region. The ‘Burgers 4 Beds’ campaign will see each restaurant craft a signature burger with proceeds going towards Lilydale support organisation Holy Fools. Branded Burger and Bar co-owner Gina Braidner said her restaurant’s double chicken burger features a house made chilli jam to “warm up” burger lovers of the Yarra Valley. 100 per cent of the burger’s proceeds will go towards the Burgers 4 Beds. “I was lying in bed one night, it was freezing cold on one of those nights where it was minus one degrees,” she said. Ms Braidner said she thought about those who didn’t have a warm bed to sleep in and made a call to Holy Fools founder and CEO, Neal Taylor, who shared there are about 300 people sleeping rough across the Yarra Ranges. “It hit home that it’s not good enough and I thought, what can I do to help?” And it comes as Melbourne experiences a recent cold snap. Coldstream was one of many locations across the state to experience its lowest May minimum temperature on record at -3.0 degrees celsius, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. The city fell to 1.7 degrees celsius on the morning of Sunday 30 May, the coldest May morning in Melbourne for over 70 years. Ms Braidner’s business has started serving
