Men's Shed receives further $20,000 grant
Umina Beach Men's Shed has received a further grant of $20,000 to help it complete its new shed.
"The board of directors of Bendigo Bank Ettalong Beach met and agreed to offer more support to us to complete our new shed with a further grant of $20,000," said Shed president Mr Darrell Pannowitz.
"This is in addition to the $70,000 they provided to kick start the project."
He said local residents should consider supporting the local bank.
"The Bendigo Bank at Ettalong is our community bank.
"Unlike the big five, it was established by local people and is managed by local people with the intention of supporting our local community.
"Our Bendigo Community Bank at Ettalong gives up to 80 per cent of profits back to our community to help organisations like ours.
"Our local Bandigo Bank has the same deposit holder protection under the Australian Government Scheme as the bigger banks," he said.
