Magic money trees

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

WATCH­ING money grow is a plea­sur­able ex­pe­ri­ence which is why the Com­mon­wealth Bank in Port Dou­glas has chipped in $500 for the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Gar­den.

The staff at the lo­cal Macrossan Street branch de­cided to get to­gether and toss around ideas on which worth­while char­ity they could do­nate $500.

Mi­randa Clark from the bank said she was pleased the staff at the bank could help be­cause the gar­den was a wor­thy cause that would ben­e­fit the whole re­gion.

Ms Clark and com­mu­nity gar­den pro­ject man­ager Kevin Eldridge had a lit­tle fun plant­ing $500 in the ground on Tues­day know­ing it would sprout into some­thing use­ful.

“We are just glad we could do our lit­tle bit and we look for­ward to see­ing the first crop when the time comes,” Ms Clark said.

Mr Eldridge was ec­static at the gen­er­ous gift which will be put to­wards new equip­ment.

“This helps us so much and we thank the Com­mon­wealth Bank for their won­der­ful help,” Mr Eldridge said.

The pub­lic can help the gar­den raise money by get­ting along to the Port Dou­glas mar­kets where the Com­mon­wealth Bank staff will be help­ing out with a sausage siz­zle as well as sell­ing seedlings nur­tured by the com­mu­nity gar­den crew on Sunday.
