Happily supporting Telethon


31 October 2011

At Bankwest we are incredibly proud to have clocked up over 40 years of supporting Telethon (since 1968) – the uniquely West Aussie televised fundraising forum that does so much to improve the lives of children and young people throughout our great state.

Over 26 hours the fabulous Channel 7 broadcast, held on the weekend of October 15 and 16, managed to raise a massive $13.4 million – breaking the previous record of $10 million. It’s a figure all West Aussies should be very proud of. Bankwest happily donated $215,000 to Telethon this year as we feel it’s important to recognise one of the most significant charity events of the year.

Throughout the incredibly entertaining broadcast, viewers pledge to donate funds to Telethon which are converted into cash donations by visiting any WA Bankwest store between October 17 and December 30. Thank you very much!
