Phoenix Whyalla – “The Heat is On”
On Monday 13th July, Phoenix Whyalla celebrated achieving their fundraising target of $38,000 to purchase and install heating for their Whyalla workshop.
Employees of Bedford-Phoenix celebrated this milestone with Nathan Aston (General Manager Marketing & Community Engagement), Lynne Breuer (Board member) and local Manager Tim Breuer. Also in attendance were members from the Lions Club of Whyalla and Beyond Bank representatives Shane Farley, John Hunt, Kelly Hyslop, David Miller and Gill Harvey.
Beyond Bank Australia helped kick-start this project eighteen months ago with a community grant of $10,000. Since then, a further $28,000 has been raised from the support of local businesses, service groups and the Whyalla community as a whole.
This fundraising project has demonstrated wonderful effort by all in the Whyalla community in these tough economic times – a true reflection of the strength and resilience garnered by our community partnerships programs.
