Bank grants wishes

GATTON can now rebuild with confidence thanks to grants from Commonwealth Bank.

Over the coming weeks, the Bank's grant program will distribute over $5 million in grants to not-for-profit community groups who suffered damage or loss as a result of flood or cyclone damage in recent months.

This is part of the Bank's overarching $65 million natural disaster assistance package which was launched in January 2011.
