The Heartland Trust Supports the Australian Bushfires

11 March 2020

Heartland Bank News

Heartland is deeply saddened by the effect of the Australian bushfires on our people and the environment. We extend our sympathy to all of those impacted, including the amazing volunteer firefighters. We know the devastation caused will have a lasting impact, especially on those that have lost loved ones, their homes and local communities.

Heartland recognises the responsibility we have in the communities that have aided our development and aims to award grants, sponsorship and support to worthwhile causes that make a difference in the communities in which we operate.

To assist those working to help the Australian people recover from the bush fires, and our Heartland Seniors Finance Australian customers, The Heartland Trust wishes to donate a $5,000 grant to the Victorian Country Fire Association, who manage fighting fires, road rescues and fundraising.

The Heartland Trust is a registered charitable trust which is independent from but closely supported by Heartland Group.

The Heartland Trust will also be donating $5,000 to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, who, in addition to fighting fires, provide community programs and services such as the NSW AIDERS (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents) – a program designed to help vulnerable and isolated people live safely and confidently in their homes, in areas where bush fires may begin.

The Heartland Trust is currently in the process of administering these donations. We hope this will provide much needed assistance to those affected.
