Blackburn South Community Bank Sponsorship

We are so grateful to our local Bendigo Bank – Blackburn South Community Bank – who sponsored our purchase of a brand new laptop in 2012. This greatly assists us, as our existing one was on its last legs and as you are aware this laptop is a vital part of our borrowing process. So thank you again to Peter and the team for your generosity, we really do appreciate it.
