Bank staff close up for com­mu­nity jobs

Central Leader - - NEWS -

BNZ branches and of­fices around the coun­try are clos­ing for the day on Septem­ber 4 for a good cause.

Closed for Good will see nearly 5500 BNZ em­ploy­ees get­ting stuck into odd jobs that need do­ing for com­mu­nity and not-for­profit groups.

‘‘Whether it’s a fence to paint, a gar­den to weed or even writ­ing a fi­nan­cial plan, thou­sands of our staff are avail­able to help your or­gan­i­sa­tion be good with money,’’ BNZ chief ex­ec­u­tive An­drew Thorburn says.

‘‘We can of­fer re­sources to as­sist with fi­nan­cial plan­ning, HR and mar­ket­ing ad­vice, build­ing an app or even just be­ing there to lend a hand to a big job.’’

Last year BNZers in Auck­land Cen­tral helped out on a num­ber of projects in­clud­ing tak­ing Kid­sCan chil­dren on a ‘‘big day out’’ at the zoo.

Go to closed­for­good.org to sub­mit a pro­ject by July 26.
