Hume Bank has raised $10,000 for the Women’s Centre of Health and Wellbeing Albury Wodonga. 300 guests attended Regent Cinemas Albury Wodonga last night to hear from internationally recognised body image activist Taryn Brumfitt.
“It was empowering to see so many women and a few men come together to celebrate their bodies and achievements. As a purpose led organisation which exists to invest in its customers and communities it operates in, we’ll continue to support local, not-for-profit groups where we can” said David Marshall, Chief Executive Officer - Hume Bank.
Lil Beamish, Chief Executive Officer of the Women’s Centre said the funds raised will go towards the ‘Lioness Program’ to assist women throughout their pregnancy journey.
“The newly developed program will put pregnant women at ease by giving them direction as to how to access local maternity services for pre and post-natal care” said Ms Beamish.
“Taryn is an incredible role model and inspiration to us all and I think all guests left with key messages to help end the global body-hate epidemic” said Mr Marshall.
