Well known and respected in our local areas of Mitcham, Unley and surrounding suburbs – The Torrens Arms Hotel has long been known as a pillar of support for local schools, sporting clubs, charities, and community events. We recognise the importance of the role we play with the support that we provide, and we are truly privileged to see the differences we help make in the community!
The giant east-facing wall of our bottleshop had stood a blank canvas for years. Rather than commission an artist to paint it – we partnered with Unley High School in developing a mural design scholarship for their students, with guidance from local full-time artist Mike Sander – plus a cash prize for the winning student!
A panel of judges filtered through some amazing submissions, with the winner being named Year 11 student – Lei. Mike worked closely with Lei to further develop the design into the masterpiece it is today.
The TA and Unley High School will continue the Mural Scholarship into the future, running the competition annually.
Being situated right across the road from Wallis Cinemas Mitcham, it seemed silly not to partner up and offer the locals an affordable dinner and movie date!
We offer $10 tickets with any main meal purchased for lunch and dinner! Feast on a delicious meal and treat your lover or family to a blockbuster film – the perfect day or night out!
Charities and Fundraising
Never knocking back the opportunity to help out a good cause, we provide support in many ways. Financial sponsorship & scholarships, donations for raffles, facilitation of charity collections, complementary room hire and a huge amount of staff participation in fundraising events under the “TA” banner.
Two of the most significant charity events on the TA calendar every year are the Novita Mighty River Run and the Josh Deegan Memorial Golf day.
Here at the TA, we love looking after our regulars! Which is why we put together the TA Loyalty App. For every dollar you spend at the hotel you’ll earn reward points to get free stuff. From pints, to snacks, to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure – Espresso Martinis!
You’ll also earn points when it’s your birthday and also if you invite friends to use the app. How good! Available via iTunes and Google Play stores.
