‘The staff from the Commonwealth Bank Regional and Agribusiness Banking team from Albury donned their best painting clothes and put gusto into freshening up the offices of Country Hope Albury.  After a brief induction, and most importantly being shown were the coffee and muesli bars were, we got into tapping cornices, filling cracks and holes, sanding, and preparing the walls throughout the office. Once prepared, the paint was poured, and boy was it a hype of activity. The team were able to finish off the entry, move across to the laundry, and even give the loo a quick lick of paint. As much fun and excitement it was for them, there was a real reason why they were there as a team. As team members of the CBA, they are dedicated to give back to the community, understanding that without the support of the local community they don’t have a purpose.

John Lazarov Agribusiness Executive at CBA stated “Personally, all the members of the team that assisted have a connection and background to regional and remote Victoria, NSW, and even WA. We understand the importance of having an organisation such as Country Hope. It is a constant, a place for reflection, a place for assistance, and a place to help pull you through some of the most difficult times that people experience in their lives. We were all honoured and glad to be able to work with Country Hope, and we look forward to continuing our efforts in the community. Keep up the great work, keep up the hope! Thanks Nikki”

From all of us at Country Hope, we would like to thank the CBA Regional and Agribusiness Banking team for their wonderful support and contribution to the Albury Office.  It is through the recognition of the importance of the services Country Hope offers to our local communities and through the generous support that we are given by people such as you that keeps our organisation going.
