WARBURTON UP AND RUNNING FUN RUN“Because of Bendigo Bank Community Contributions, the Warburton Up and Running Fun Run continues to provide our community with an event that promotes running as a wonderful inclusive outdoor recreation pursuit and showcases the beauty of Warburton as one of Australia’s best destinations for recreation and leisure.” -Lesley Grimes, Warburton Up and Running Fun Run
Yes to Respect”Yes to Respect, the newly formed group which organised a march to promote respectful relationships and the prevention of family violence in the Upper Yarra, are extremely grateful to Warburton and Yarra Junction Community banks for their support and contribution to the campaign’s success. As a result, it is planned to continue with it annually.”
-Nicole Bechard, Coordinator YES TO RESPECT
GIRO DELLA DONNA PICOLO“It meant a lot to us to be supported by UYCE/Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Banks. Their support allowed us to add the family ride, the Piccolo Giro, to the Giro Della Donna weekend, and make it free for all to participate in. The smiles on kids’ faces as they dressed up their bikes, got their faces painted and rode out for some serious fun with family and friends was the highlight of the Giro Della Donna! Our sincerest thanks for getting behind us and behind the community”. -Michael Hands, Event Organiser, GIRO DELLA DONNA CYCLING
The River Folk Festival"We would like to sincerely say a huge thank you to Bendigo Community Bank Warburton and Yarra Junction for their generous support of The River Folk Festival from 2018-2020. The Bank has provided sponsorship support for the event for the last 3 years, since its inception in 2018 and the Festival would not have been possible without it. The sponsorship funds have been critical in meeting the production requirements for the core of the Festival - but also contributed greatly to the Youth Music Mentoring Program, allowing the Festival to provide mentoring opportunities for local young performers. The contributions from the Community Bank have allowed us to grow the scope of the Festival, still in its early years, and have provided a crucial solid base from which to develop this event alongside the local community.
Thank you, sincerely, for the generosity and support offered to The River Folk Festival. It means so much to us and has allowed the event to grow and develop in the last 3 years - and we would not have been able to achieve so much without this support."
-Sam Watson, Director, THE RIVER FOLK FESTIVAL
