We’re FaB… just ask us. (FaB – Friends amongst Bankwest)
11 February 2011
Everybody strives to be a little bit FaB but at Bankwest we really are! FaB is our working group; led by a team of very enthusiastic team of volunteers that go beyond the call of duty to organise our fundraising events.
All money raised goes to Bankwest’s charity partners – Red Kite and Edmund Rice camps for Kids WA. The end of 2010 saw the Bankwest FaB Committe handing over cheques for $5,000 to Edmund Rice and Red Kite…even more exciting – Bankwest workplace matched the money – giving the charities $10,000 each.
Red Kite does an amazing job supporting young people and their families through the difficult experience of cancer. Bankwest’s donation means Red Kite will be able to help hundreds of extra families this year.
Edmund Rice Camps for Kids WA provides camps and other recreational activities for kids that might otherwise not be able to experience with the Bankwest donation, Edmund Rice has been able to increase the number of camps they’ll be hosting from four to six.
Over the last few months the Bankwest FaB team and committee members have held raffles, handball events and quizzes to raise the funds internally. It’s a rewarding outlet for our dedicated FaB committee and we’re proud of them!
