Events & support for Traders Associations

Street performer with a fire wheel at Zagreb’s street festival “Cest is d’best”

We provided funding to establish the Union Road Surrey Hills Traders Association. Union Road traders were significantly impacted by the level crossing project. Sponsorship was provided to support Christmas activities and events in Maling Road, Canterbury. We were the major sponsor of the Surrey Hills Music Festival, the Ashburton Community Festival and the Camberwell Art Show. We also supported several school fetes and fairs.

The sponsorship provided by the Community Bank enabled us to deliver a fabulous Ashburton Community Festival. Without this sponsorship we could not have funded the cost of our entertainment, BABBA, who were one of the highlights of the event.
