Westpac piggy banks raise funds for the community

Westpac Bank PNG have kicked off their 100 year celebrations with ‘Save and Share’, a piggy bank promotion to support charity and community groups across Papau New Guinea.

“Since Westpac brought banking to Papua New Guinea on 10 May 1910, we have been more than just a bank - we’ve been part of the community,” said Mr Ross Hammond, Managing Director.

“As you know pigs play an important role in Papua New Guinea  - they are a symbol of wealth, prosperity and celebration. As such it is fitting that we begin Westpac PNG’s 100 year celebrations with ‘Share and Save’, a promotion which directly benefits the community,” he added. 

Thanks to ‘Save and Share’, Westpac branded piggy banks will be sold at branches for K15 to raise funds for charities and community groups across Papua New Guinea. K5 from the sale of each piggy bank sold will be donated to the branch’s chosen charity.

Charities or community groups that branches have chosen to support include Callan Services Special School for the Disabled Persons at Alotau, Cheshire Homes, Mount Sion Centre for the Blind, Mount 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, Vanimo Correctional Institution, Port Moresby City Mission and Oxfam at Wewak.
