There are many local organisations doing amazing things within our community, and the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank branches make a concerted effort to support as many of these community projects as possible. A project that we are particularly proud of is the partnership with the San Foundation to Fight Against Cancer.
Whilst the Fight Against Cancer is an ongoing initiative, the official opening of the San Integrated Cancer Centre was recently celebrated. The San Integrated Cancer Centre is a state-of-the-art centre of excellence, which builds on the San’s existing expertise, experience and world-class reputation providing an integrated treatment centre for patients with cancer and other chronic diseases.
The San Foundation is continually looking for financial support to ensure that major projects such as the Integrated Cancer Centre are able to provide the best facilities, staffing and treatment options available. When the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank branches found out about what the San Foundation was trying to achieve, we jumped at the opportunity to help.
In addition to the $5000 donation, a referral rewards program was put in place to encourage ongoing donations. When any Adventist HealthCare staff, patients or community friends are referred to the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank branches and draw down a home or investment loan, $500 will be donated to the San Foundation. Not only will the San Foundation benefit from this program, the person responsible for the loan draw down will also receive a saving of $600 from the upfront loan fees. This is a great initiative to continually drive donations from the Community Bank branches into the San Foundation.
Barbara Ward – Managing Director, San Foundation commented: “Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank branches have shown tremendous support to the San Foundation, we are very grateful for the generous donation of $5,000 and this great community initiative. We hope many people will support us”
