Nightcliff community meeting

Nightcliff Community Enterprises, in partnership with Bendigo Bank, is a locally owned company which was set up to provide local banking services in Nightcliff, Coconut Grove and Rapid Creek, with services extending to all Darwin suburbs.
Owned by local shareholders and with a board of local volunteer directors, Nightcliff Community Enterprises Ltd. has a charter to return 80% of it's profits to the local community.

After the NAB closed their branch in Nightcliff, a steering committee of concerned locals began promoting the concept of providing a local bank using the Community Bank® model.

The first Community Bank was set up to provide banking services in Rupanyup and Minyip in Victoria after those towns found themselves in similar circumstances, with no local bank branches. Since the first Community Bank® opened, more than 265 local communities have partnered with Bendigo Bank to open local banks around Australia.

In the Northern Territory there are also Community Banks at Alice Springs, Katherine and Coolalinga, and a Bendigo Bank corporate branch in Smith St. Darwin.

Nightcliff Community Bank was opened by Austin Ashe on the 24th September 2008 as a result of local community support.
The Nightcliff Bank provides all the facilities expected of a modern bank with the full support and expertise of Bendigo Bank.

Support your Community Bank.

Well, this bank had been able to bring in some good changes in the society, especially in the sports sector as they had been sponsoring the teams that were struggling to make a break because the lack of financial support.

Happy Birthday Nightcliff Community Bank
by: Autism NT

In September 2009 President of the Autism Northern Territory committee Cherry Cameron accepted $500 from the Nightcliff Community Bank in celebration of their first birthday. As a non- profit community organisation we were honoured to have been selected as one of three local organisations to receive a donation.

Each year Autism NT holds a Members Christmas Party in early December. All of our members are invited and children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and their siblings all receive a gift from Santa. The funds donated by the Nightcliff Community Bank made a significant contribution towards the purchase of these gifts.

The staff, committee and members of Autism NT would like to thank the Board and Staff of Nightcliff Community Bank for their support of both our organisation and other worthy recipients.

Great to see this bank supporting local community sports and charities. This is more than just a bank, it's a part of the community. You can tell that when you talk to the staff too, they obviously feel this is more than just a branch of some distant company. And it shows in the friendly hands-on service they provide when you walk in.
Call in and say hello sometime.
