Bank contributes $160,000 to local projects

A local bank has contributed more than $160,000 to projects on the Peninsula over the past year.

The Ettalong branch of the Bendigo Community Bank has contributed $50,000 to help the Umina Skate Park Precinct upgrade.

A further $34,000 has been granted to the Peninsula PCYC.

The Men's Shed received $80,000 towards new secure premises for their activities.

Brisbane Water Secondary College was granted ongoing funding to support activities and their agricultural vehicle.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said the Bendigo Bank team was one of a kind.

"We don't often hear about banks supporting local community, yet that is exactly what Bendigo Bank achieves," Ms Tesch said.

She said the Bendigo Bank's "profit-with-purpose" model aimed to put some of its profit back into the community.

Ms Tesch said: "The new year is a perfect time to reflect on how we actively are giving back to our community, to ensure those less fortunate than us are safe, happy and able to live a comfortable life.

"Bendigo Bank's funding initiatives and profit-with-purpose model show us just how easy it is for all of us to contribute every day to a better and stronger community.

"We can all put our money where our mouth is and with a simple switch of bank we can have a remarkable difference on our community and local quality of life."
