Girl Guides give the Commonwealth Bank thumbs up

Cobar Commonwealth Bank employees have donated $500 to the Cobar Girl Guides as part of the bank’s nationwide community donation program.
The Commonwealth Bank has again pledged to donate $500,000 nationally, to recognise those organisations that make a difference to the communities in which they operate.
Cobar branch manager Donovan Cornwell said each Commonwealth Bank branch is allo-cated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.
He said the Cobar staff voted to support the great work of the Cobar Girl Guides.
“Many communities across Australia face ongoing challenges as a result of the corona-virus pandemic, so it’s important for us to give back to local organisations who continue to do good work within our community.
“We are pleased to support Cobar Girl Guides Association,” Mr Cornwell said.
“They seem to do a lot in the community, things like handing out Christmas hampers last December and most of what they do goes un-noticed.”
“The Girl Guides are quiet achievers in eve-rything they do so it is great to be able to pub-licly recognise and acknowledge their contri-bution to our community and to be able to sup-port them in this great work.”
Mr Donovan said it was the third donation the bank had made this year to the community.
“The branch decides who will benefit each time and we try to pick someone new every time,” he said.
