Bankwest support for the communities affected

service announcements

23 February 2011

Following the series of recent natural disasters across Australia, Bankwest has announced a number of support initiatives to help the communities most affected.

Perth bushfires

Bankwest announced its support of the West Australian bushfire recovery effort by donating $100,000 to the Lord Mayor's Distress Relief Fund and a further $20,000 to crisis support service, Lifeline. The donation towards Lifeline would provide financial support for the organisation, with the bushfires expected to create a higher volume of calls.
