On 07 December 2009, a vote was taken that would have a great impact on the Jerrabomberra community for years to come. At the Board Meeting of Molonglo Financial Services, the Board voted to establish the Jerrabomberra Community Bank® Branch.
Two years later, the branch opened its doors on 23 November 2011, with over 70 people in attendance. The official opening was conducted by Bendigo Bank Executive Russell Jenkins and Molonglo Financial Services Chair Jayson Hinder.
Since 2011, the branch has developed long term partnerships with community groups, such as:
- Queanbeyan Tigers Junior AFL;
- Jerra Joeys Netball;
- Googong Hogs AFL Team;
- HOME in Queanbeyan;
- ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group;
- Snowy Hydro SouthCare Helicopter Service.
Together with the Calwell, Curtin and Wanniassa Community Bank® Branches, the Jerrabomberra Branch has helped raise over $1.2 million for clubs, groups and organisations around the region.
This will continue for many years to come!
