Gawler Relay for Life

Gawler Relay for Life 2015

The team from our Gawler Branch recently volunteered at the Gawler Relay for Life run by the Cancer Council SA on 21 and 22 March.

We helped by setting up for the event in the morning and then later on in the afternoon, we handed out balloons to all the cancer survivors and carers to release at the opening of the event, followed by serving afternoon tea.

The opening ceremony was very touching and hearing the personal experiences of some of the survivors brought me to tears.

The relay started at 2pm and went through til 9:30am the following day. It was great to see so many people from all walks of life come together to support this worthwhile event.

Our Branch has already decided that we will be putting a team together of 10-15 Beyond Bank staff next year to walk the relay, we are all very excited to be a part of this event and hope to get other branches on board and raise as much money as possible for this great cause.

    Well done to all involved.
    Jodie, Gawler branch, if you need another walker on your team next year, let me know.
    It’s a terrific cause and anything that’s helps raise money and awareness for this insidious disease, is greatly needed.
    Good work. X
