Regional Australia Bank's Community Partnership Program awards almost $20,000 to Guyra community groups

Regional Australia Bank has awarded almost $20,000 to the Guyra community at their annual Partnership Program donation night on Wednesday.

Can Assist, Guyra Bowling and Recreation Club, Guyra Rescue Squad and Ben Lomond War Memorial Hall – were just a few of the groups to receive a donation.

Over the past few years, the bank has contributed more than $1.5 million to community groups.

“We’re immensely proud of our ability to deliver these kinds of social and environmental returns to our regional communities,” Regional Australia Bank Regional Manager Dane O’Connor said.

“For a bank like ours, which is founded on the promise to operate in the best interests of our customers and communities, it’s entirely fitting that our customers are able to lead the way in initiatives like this, given that they’ll often be the ones benefitting from the positive impacts of this program.”

Regional Australia Bank CEO Kevin Dupé said the Community Partnership Program was just one of the ways in which the organisation assist their customers and communities.

“Regional Australia Bank is proud to continue delivering the Community Support Program in 2017, enabling it to continue enhancing the quality of life and a strong sense of community for the regions it serves,” he said.

The banks goal for the Community Partnership Program is to reach $1 million in donations to local communities in 2018 and invites regional Australians to get on board and choose to bank with them, so that they can take advantage of this initiative and enjoy both better value from their financial institution, and help create local communities that can fully prosper and thrive.
