It does not hurt to lend a helping hand especially to support the incapables.
As part of the banks social corporate responsibility, seven staffs at the Head Office steps out on their busy weekend schedule on Saturday, 27 April and assisted the Cheshire Homes Disability Services in their sausage sizzle fundraiser.
The Cheshire Home Disability Services were doing a sausage sizzle fundraiser at the Boroko Food World as part of their annual operational plan to raise funds towards the running of the much needed care they provide to the members of the society that cannot live by themselves.
They were joined by the Port Moresby Vipers club who was invited by one of the staff Steven Johns who is also the Vipers Team Manager.
The bank distributed some merchandise to customers who purchase more than five hotdogs.
This has lured a lot of customers to the Cheshire stall which saw them sold out the targeted 600 hotdogs that raised K2, 400 in cash that will go towards the running of the home for those living with disabilities.
The bank will join them again for three other fundraisers on May 11, 2019, June 29, 2019, and on November 23, 2019.
If you wish to contribute your support, come on down to Boroko Food World on those dates and lend a helping hand either in purchasing the hotdogs or contribute gifts.
