Australia Day Awards - Community Event of the Year
Community Bank $1M Celebrations
Nominated by- Promontory District Finance Group
The Toora and District Community Bank® Branch, Foster Branch and Welshpool Agency exceeded over $1 million given back into the community and invited all past and present recipients of the fund to celebrate. Over 190 people gathered in the Foster Bowls Club to witness the Youth Assist Clinic be formally presented with a cheque for $10,000 to bring the tally to the $1 million mark. To start on the next million, the Foster Swimming Pool also received a $5,000 grant towards their new Solar Project. The entire Community Bank team was congratulated on meeting this magnificent milestone, with many of the directors celebrating their 18th year on the board of management.
The night was also to thank customers for making it possible for the Community Banks to be profitable, thus providing support to local clubs and community groups. With continued and growing support from across the region and beyond, their aim is to continue supporting all aspects of the community. Community Bank has provided grants to support the youth, schools, health, arts and sports of the region. Their next goal is to reach the $2 million mark.
