The Maldon & District Community Bank celebrated its 21st birthday a little differently this year, with a toilet roll ‘cake’ and the giving of gifts to the community.
Gifts of $1,000 were provided to two local groups, the Mount Alexander Community Pantry and the Dunolly Primary School community.
The funding will help these organisations support vulnerable community members during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Branch Manager Adam Balzan said the community bank were keen to mark this exciting milestone, but had to be creative and adjust their celebrations in line with Covid-19 restrictions.
“We had a fun time creating a toilet roll cake, and we also decided to provide presents to the community as you can’t have a birthday without cake or presents! The equivalent toilet rolls were donated to the Mount Alexander Community Pantry along with the $1,000 donations to our communities,” Adam said. See the Mail for the full story. Out now.
