Fighting Cancer with the San Foundation

There are many local organisations doing amazing things within our community. Here at the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank® branches we make an effort to support as many of these community projects as we can. One that we are particularly proud of is our partnership with the San Foundation to Fight Against Cancer.

Fight Against Cancer is an ongoing initiative for the Foundation. We were delighted to attend the recent celebrations of the official opening of the San Integrated Cancer Centre. The centre is a state-of-the-art centre of excellence, which builds on the San's existing expertise, experience and world-class reputation. It will provide an integrated treatment centre for patients with cancer and other chronic diseases.

The San Foundation is continually looking for financial support to ensure that major projects such as the Integrated Cancer Centre are able to provide the best facilities, staffing and treatment options available.

When we found out about what the San Foundation was trying to achieve, we jumped at the opportunity to help.

Late last year, we were thrilled to be able to present the San Foundation with a cheque for $5,000.

A referral rewards program was also set up to encourage ongoing donations. When any Adventist HealthCare staff, patient or community friend draws down a home or investment loan at the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank® branches, $500 is donated to the San Foundation. This is a great initiative to continually drive donations from the Community Bank® branches into the San Foundation.

Barbara Ward – Managing Director, San Foundation commented: “Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank® branches have shown tremendous support to the San Foundation. We are very grateful for the generous donation of $5,000 and this great community initiative. We hope many people will support us.”
