The small town received a
newly constructed bus stop that was completed and handed over by the BSP branch
staff as part of their
community project for 2016.
The staff assisted with
the project by digging
gutters around the bus stop shelter, painting seats, posts, frames, installing
rubbish bin stands and did a general clean up, while the construction of frames
was done with the support of a local contractor.
The branch also donated a 9000L water tank to Vilelo Primary School
located out of town in the Government Land
Settlement Scheme block. The school does not have a water supply plant and
relies only on two water tanks. The tanks cater for approximately 400 plus
students and staff with their dependents.
LLG Manageress, Sabina Misili and Vilelo Primary School Principal Leo Pokas,
both expressed gratitude for the Banks contribution to the community.
Area Manager – NGI,
Jeffrey Singer, while handing over the project to Bialla Local level
Government said that, BSP recognised the need of
improving community living standards in which we live and operate in.
“While we stand as a corporate
organisation, each of our staff is a part of a community. Our vision also
aligns BSP to be the leading financial services provider in our chosen markets,
helping customers, staff, shareholders and communities prosper.”
“We urge students and the
local community to take care of the facilities and for the betterment of our
future,” Mr Singer said.
