G&C Mutual Bank staff continue to demonstrate our company values and commitment to the community by volunteering, raising funds, and collecting goods for a number of worthy charities. Here are some of the highlights from 2018.
Our staff joined volunteers from the Australian Mutuals Foundation and other mutuals, to assist Barnardos Children’s Family Centre in taking children and their carers to visit the Special Children’s Christmas Party held at Rosehill Gardens.
Staff generously donated gifts and funds for the Pyjama Foundation's Toy Drive, helping to ensure every child in care had the Christmas they deserve. G&C Mutual Bank also contributed an additional $1000 to the fundraising efforts.
A number of our staff attended an RSPCA NSW Corporate Support Day where they completed an educational workshop on animal welfare, toured the shelter and veterinary hospital, and helped out with maintenance and other tasks. A highlight was interacting with the RSPCA shelter animals.
Staff efforts contributed towards an assortment of 21 hampers, consisting of 181 individual non-perishable food items to support OzHarvest - Australia’s leading food rescue organisation.
Fundraisers were also held to support the Cancer Council and Movember. It has been a busy and rewarding year, and we look forward to being actively involved in the community again in 2019.
