LITHGOW Commonwealth Bank branch is celebrating the 100 years of commonwealth banking across Australia by nominating a local organisation who takes particular interest in the local community’s health and wellbeing.
Lithgow Ambulance Service was chosen during a morning meeting when the idea was brought forward who is now the thankful recipients of a data projector and mobile screen.
“This will help considerably,” District Operational Manager Ron Gavin said.
“We put a high level of professionalism into training and this equipment will allows us to go off site with it.
“Initially we will put it to use at Mt Wilson when we train community first response volunteers.
“We have always tried to push training with both the community and those who study through University of Western Sydney and now University of Notre Dame.”
Lithgow Commonwealth Bank branch manager Matthew Kirkland was pleased with the decision to donate the projector and screen to the Lithgow Ambulance Station.
“Each branch gets to choose who and how they will donate the sum allocated to them,” Mr Kirkland said.
“Some branches chose to split up the donations but when it was mentioned at the office we thought the ambulance are one of the most prominent in the community to represent health and well being.
“If we can help expand on getting the knowledge of saving people’s lives into the community by aiding the volunteers then it’s a choice well made.”
