Commonwealth Bank lends a hand
June 2019
Thank you to the Ballina & Coolangatta Commonwealth Bank branches, who each donated $500 to Momentum Collective. 
Coolangatta Commonwealth Bank Manager Laura Dent said she found out about Momentum Collective when she saw a flyer for an art exhibition earlier this year. “I saw an art exhibition flyer for Club Latitude and I said to my colleagues that it would be good to support the program.”Ms Dent said the timing was perfect because the bank had pledged to donate $500,000 nationally to recognise organisations that make a difference in local communities. “Each branch was allocated $500 to donate to local causes. Our team voted to support the great work of Momentum Collective,” she said.
