Why Should we change banks?

Five good reasons (from the many) why you should consider changing banks

  1. When you bank with Lara District Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank, great things happen in Lara. Local projects & clubs get funding. So far they have given over $1 million back to our region.
  2. They are local & easy to get to and are they are open on Saturday mornings.
  3. They have really good products & rates.
  4. We will give you $50 toward the club merchandise, fees or uniform for having a meeting with the branch & mentioning the Lara Giants.**
  5. We will give you $100 extra if you change your home loan with the bank. **

My Story: Jason Aherne: LBC President

I have been involved with the Lara Giants for many years. I have been to many of the Bendigo Bank nights encouraging locals to change our banking to them. But that just seemed to hard & all those other excuses where it was just easier to not change.

I did my homework & negotiated with my existing bank a discount on my rate & then arranged to see the Bendigo Bank Lara loans manager Michelle Duncan on a Saturday morning. We gathered our figures & what we wanted from our loan & spoke about the different banking options the bank has available. The bank had a great interest rate (better than my newly discounted rate) and I was able to extend my home loan (to do a few jobs around the house). I was also able to support this wonderful bank that has been so supportive to my club & so many other Lara & District groups.

It costs nothing to book an appointment & have a chat. You don’t have to change banks, but you owe it to yourself to see what the Lara Community Bank can do for you.

**Note: $50 & $100 given in terms of money to spend with the club to cover playing costs, uniforms or merch. Numbers are strictly limited to the first 10 appointments (however may be extended)
