Calling Telethon for over 40 years
14 January 2011
Bankwest has been supporting Telethon since its launch in 1968, during which Telethon has raised over $100 million.
Telethon is dedicated to raising funds to improve the lives of children and young people throughout Western Australia, with a particular focus on medical and social welfare, and funding research into children’s diseases.
Every year Bankwest staff happily volunteer their time to man the phones, assist with events, collect donations in-store and raise awareness.
As a primary sponsor, we’re also responsible for collecting and tallying the donations of the generous West Australians who have helped contribute to the money that has been raised since Telethon began.
