The Mutual Bank is supporting seven local charities to help make the lives of families facing a bleak winter a little easier.  

Alongside the already rising cost of living, the cold weather can be a tough time for families as they experience a rise in utility and food bills to get through the season.  

The Mutual Bank’s Chief Member Officer Matthew Dunnill said no donation was too small and can be dropped into any of our seven branches. 

“Local charities do such an amazing job and I’m so pleased our team has chosen to once again demonstrate one of our core values, Care, and run our winter appeal,” he said. 

“I hope our Members can consider adding to the donations too,” he said. 

Each branch pairs with a local charity, so you know your donation is going towards families in your LGA. Learn more about the seven organisations and the donations their collecting below:
