The Bendigo Bank effect in 2024

Waves of Wellness with Carla Papac is on 21 February at Jungle and Co in Noosa Junction.

As the year rapidly unfolds, Bendigo Community Bank Sunshine Coast is delighted to announce we are once again the major sponsor of the Sunny Coast Showdown.

Sunny Coast Showdown is an idea incubator where successful applicants receive funding, support and mentoring to develop and bring their film projects to life.

“We are proud to support initiatives that benefit not only the local film industry but also contribute to the broader economic tapestry, enriching our community as a whole,” Trish Radge said, Chair of Bendigo Community Bank Sunshine Coast.

In 2024, the Community Bank’s commitment extends to numerous organisations including the Coolum Wedge Body Surfing Festival, Noosa Coast Guard, Noosa Alive, Noosa Jazz Club, Cooroy Badminton Club Noosa Arts Theatre, Noosa Chamber of Commerce, Pomona King of the Mountain race and Noosa Barbell Club. These sponsorships exemplify our dedication to fostering community bonds and supporting endeavours that enrich the fabric of our local communities.

This month, we are excited to present Waves of Wellness with Ironwoman Carla Papac. This exclusive event, scheduled for Wednesday, 21 February, from 7am to 8:20am at Jungle and Co in Noosa Junction, promises a holistic exploration of exercise, nutrition, and well-being for women at every life stage.

Health and fitness enthusiasts will enjoy a complimentary and healthy breakfast.

This event is an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and gain invaluable insights from Carla Papac.

Trish Radge, emphasises, “On top of our community funding, Bendigo Bank’s greatest strength is that we have maintained physical branches in Tewantin, Cooroy, and Marcoola to support our customers. Online banking is fantastic but when you need someone to help with a problem then there’s nothing better than walking into a branch or calling the branch directly and speaking to a local Customer Service Officer.”

“Through sponsorships and local initiatives, we channel the majority of our profits back into the communities we serve. Choosing to bank with your local Bendigo Banks becomes a powerful way for your banking to make a difference in your community.”
