A MESSAGE FROM OUR LOCAL BENDIGO BANK WHO ARE GREAT SUPPORTERS OF OUR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY -
The local Anglesea/Winchelsea Community Bank has been a long time supporter of the Moriac Primary School and Kinder and I would like to just clear up some potential misconceptions as to how the Bank operates. The Community Bank branches are owned and operated by a local company called Corangamite Financial Services. This company is owned by local people as shareholders and is run by a board of volunteers. This company franchises all of the products of the Bendigo Bank and is further supported by the full back office and specialist staff of the Bendigo Bank.
The profits of all the banking done locally is then shared between the Bendigo Bank and the local Community Bank, allowing us to give grants and funding back to local groups. We have now donated over $1.70 million back to groups in our catchment area, of which in excess of $120,000 has come back to the Modewarre Football, Netball and Cricket Clubs, Barwon Valley Pony Club, Modewarre Scouts and Fire Brigade and of course the Moriac Primary School and Kindergarten. The ATM facility located at the Community Health Centre in Hendy Main Road was also provided by the Community Bank to service the needs of our local customers.
We are very proud of our contribution to residents of the Moriac, Mt Moriac, Modewarre, Gherang and Paraparap communities and we look forward to assisting you even more in the future.
For us to continue and grow our support, we would love you to join us and allow the banking profits that your business generates to flow directly back into your own local community. Please contact us at either of our branches at Anglesea 52 633 906 and Winchelsea 52 673 189 or contact Rob Cameron on 0435 528 850 to discuss your banking needs. After opening your accounts at either of our Community Bank branches at Anglesea or Winchelsea, you are still able to conduct all of your in house needs at any Geelong branch for your convenience, but remember that the connection at the local branches allows us to continue our support of your COMMUNITY.
Both branches are open from 9.30-5.00 on weekdays and the Winchelsea branch is also open for business on Saturday mornings from 9.00-12.00 to suit the needs of busy customers. Rob Cameron is also available to meet you in your home after hours if you are busy midweek.
