Closed For Good (BNZ community initiative) - do you know any projects that need some help?

On 4 November we're literally going to close the Bank for the day, to allow as many of our people as possible to get out and support our local communities.
Closed for Good is a unique way for NZ communities to get free help with projects that are nominated by our communities. Between now and 27 September, we're asking for ideas about projects that we can help with on the day. You don't need to be a BNZ customer to have a project selected - it just needs to be something that helps your community to be better off.

On the day, we'll be working in teams of all sizes, on projects all over NZ. So - if you have a project that you'd like your local BNZ team to help out with, then let us know. Check out the website and make a submission!
