In a two week lead up to the main event, the Community Bank Daylesford District have given away $1000 a day to a randomly selected local community group. The initiative will see $10,000 in total given back to various Community Groups to celebrate the Branch’s 10 years of service.

Customer Relationship Manager, Kate Boyle said “I had the privilege of making the phone calls to each of the lucky winning groups. The feedback from the groups was resoundingly positive and every person I spoke to was so appreciative of the support.” She continued “It is an incredible feeling knowing that our roles here in the branch can do so much to assist our greater community. We are all extremely proud to be a part of the team at Community Bank Daylesford District.”

The grants seem to have come at the perfect time for many groups in our new COVID-normal world. One group in particular is the 5000 Club who are due to re-commence their weekly lunches this month, with the first taking place on April 29th at Victoria Park.

The 10 lucky recipients of $1000 each are:

  • Hepburn Region Blue Light
  • 5000 Club
  • Daylesford Speedway Drivers Association
  • Glenlyon Sports Club
  • U3A Hepburn Shire
  • Daylesford & Hepburn United Soccer Club
  • Daylesford RSL Sub-Branch
  • Daylesford & District Pipes & Drums
  • Daylesford Senior Citizens Centre
  • Rotary Club of Daylesford
