A $500 donation has been made by Commonwealth Bank Port Pirie branch employees to St John Ambulance Training, as part of a nationwide community donation program.

The bank is donating $40,000 across Australia to recognise organisations that make a difference to the communities in which they operate.

Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.

Commonwealth Bank's Port Pirie branch team voted to support the work of St John Ambulance Training within the local community.

"More than ever, communities across Australia are feeling the effects of lockdowns and other pandemic-related impacts, so this is one small way we can champion those local organisations who continue to do good work within our community," Commonwealth Bank Port Pirie branch manager Alicia Guy said.

"We are pleased to support St John Ambulance Training.

"In particular, the St John Ambulance Training support our local community at events and sporting activities and train our community in first aid, so it's great to be able to support them in this great work."
