Christmas gift appeal

Country Hope Christmas Gift Appeal

Beyond Bank has a strong commitment to Wagga and to the community groups we partner with in the region. This year we have once again partnered with Country Hope to support their annual Christmas Gift Appeal.

On Tuesday 28th October Beyond Bank staff launched the gift appeal at our Wagga branch at 141 Peter Street and we are now encouraging our members and the general public to support our Christmas Gift Appeal.

The appeal will run from Tuesday 28th October through to Friday 28th November with Beyond Bank collecting wrapped Christmas Gifts from members, staff, and the community at any of our branches at Coolamon, Ganmain or Wagga Wagga.

These gifts are for children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses and their siblings, who are currently supported by Country Hope and will be given to the children at the annual Country Hope Christmas Party on Sunday 30th November.

We anticipate we will need  almost 200 gifts this year for the children – 102 gifts for girls, and  80 gifts for boys so that everyone receives a present for Xmas.

If you would like to donate to the Beyond Bank – Country Hope Christmas Gift Appeal please bring your wrapped gift to any of our branches before Friday 28th November.

Ideally the gifts should be:

  • For either Boys or Girls
  • Age Groups: 1 year  – 16 years
  • Only NEW, WRAPPED gifts will be accepted
  • Gifts to the value of approx. $20

Christmas is a great time of year to not only spoil your family but to also think about those in the community doing it a bit tough and we can’t think of a better gift for anyone than that to know you have put a smile on the face of child doing it tough over Christmas.
