The Community Bank Model is based around our customers’ banking making a difference to our community.
And thanks to our customers, that’s exactly what has happened in our recent sponsorship round!
After struggling through cancelled and shortened seasons, local sporting clubs are putting a huge emphasis on getting kids back into sport with many local cricket clubs reaching out to develop girls teams for the upcoming summer season.
We’re also thrilled to be assisting Footscray Lacrosse Club get their in-schools program back up and running in local primary schools for 2022.
With the addition of some new recipients in this first sponsorship round for the 2021 / 2022 financial year, the total number of sporting clubs, community groups, organisations, schools, events and festivals that we have supported now tops over 170 with a total contribution of over $868,000 donated back to the community.
The recent sponsorship recipients include –
Footscray Lacrosse Club
Footscray Angliss Cricket Club
Footscray United Cricket Club
Yarraville Cricket Club
Druids Cricket Club
Williamstown Colts Cricket Club
Grand United Cricket Club
We look forward on further updates from the clubs once the season kicks off in October (fingers crossed)
