Tatura Commonwealth Bank has continued its generous tradition by presenting Goulburn Valley Health with a $10000 cheque.
To celebrate the CommBank Foundation’s centenary of giving and to recognise the immense contributions that are still being made to local communities, Commonwealth Bank has partnered with CommBank Foundation to provide more than 1000 community organisations across Australia with a $10000 centenary grant.
Staff at the Tatura branch chose to give the grant to the Peter Copulos Cancer and Wellness Centre in Shepparton.
Tatura CBA branch manager Karyn Cullis said the branch felt that everyone in their community was touched by cancer in some way.
‘‘We feel GV Health’s Wellness and Life After Cancer Program will benefit people in the Goulburn Valley community,’’ Ms Cullis said.
Hume Regional Integrated Cancer Service improvement facilitator Carole Mott said the $10000 was greatly appreciated and she was thrilled that the Commonwealth Bank staff came in person to deliver the cheque.
‘‘This funding will go a long way towards assisting cancer survivors in our local community,’’ Ms Mott said.
