Piggy banks to aid charities

National, Normal

WESTPAC Bank PNG has kicked off their 100th year celebrations with ‘Save and Share’, a piggy bank promotion to support charity and community groups across PNG.
“As you know pigs play an important role in Papua New Guinea. They are a symbol of wealth, prosperity and celebration,’’ managing director Ross Hammond said.
“As such, it is fitting that we begin Westpac PNG’s 100th year celebrations with ‘Share and Save’, a promotion which directly benefits the community,” he said. 
The Westpac branded piggy banks will be sold at branches for K15 to raise funds for charities and community groups across PNG.
From each piggy bank that is sold, K5 will be donated to the branch’s chosen charity.
Some charities who will benefit from the project include Callan Services Special School for the Disabled Persons at Alotau, Cheshire Homes, Mount Sion Centre for the Blind, Mt Hagen Dental Clinic, the Red Cross, TB Ward at Kimbe General Hospital, Anglicare Elementary School at Kokopo, Angau Memorial Hospital at Lae, Madang’s Country Women’s  Association, Misima Hospital, Hohola Orphanage, Tabubil Service Centre, Prison Ministry and the Vanimo Correctional Institution.
