Bank gives a helping hoof

Commonwealth Bank Noosa branch has donated $500 to Hoofbeats Sanctuary as part of a nationwide community donation program.

As part of this, the bank has again pledged to donate a further $500,000 Australia-wide to recognise those organisations that make a difference to the communities in which they operate.

Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.

Commonwealth Bank’s Noosa branch team nominated two local community organisations as potential recipients for the donation.

For six weeks over July and August, Noosa branch customers, along with members of the local community, voted for which nominated community organisation they would like to support. The runner-up community organisation program will also receive a donation of $250.

“Our community donations program has been running for several years now and it’s been great to be able to support local organisations who do such good work within our community. It’s also been wonderful to have our branch customers and the local community involved in the program,” Rheian Beresford, Commonwealth Bank Noosa Branch Manager said.

“Hoofbeats Sanctuary is a trauma healing centre that makes such a valuable contribution to our community by bringing people, animals and nature together to improve the emotional wellbeing of vulnerable members of our local community. We hope the donation will help them to continue their great work.”
