Magic money trees
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.
