Com­mon­wealth big­gest Legacy raiser

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

THE Port Dou­glas branch of the Com­mon­wealth Bank was the high­est fundrais­ing branch in Aus­tralia for Legacy.

The lo­cal branch raised more than $1000 dur­ing Legacy Week, with the bank rais­ing more than $60,000 Aus­tralia-wide sell­ing Legacy badges.

Far North Queens­land area man­ager Scott Spit­tles said it was a great achieve­ment by the Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity.

“The con­tri­bu­tion made by the peo­ple of Port Dou­glas truly demon­strates the spirit and com­pas­sion of the lo­cal com­mu­nity,” he said.

Legacy is ded­i­cated to the wel­fare of wi­d­ows and de­pen­dents of our Aus­tralian De­fence Force per­son­nel killed in wars, peace­keep­ing or haz­ardous ser­vice, or who have died sub­se­quently.
