Commonwealth Bank Bellingen branch employees have donated $500 to Riding for the Disabled as part of a nationwide community donation program.

This year, Commonwealth Bank has again pledged to donate $500,000 nationally to recognise organisations that make a difference in the communities in which we live and work. Each Commonwealth Bank branch and customer-facing team has been allocated $500 to donate to causes important to their local community.

Commonwealth Bank's Bellingen branch team voted to support the great work of Riding for the Disabled (NSW) Coffs harbour & Districts.

"With the festive season approaching, it's a timely opportunity for us to show our support for Riding for the Disabled," Commonwealth Bank Bellingen Branch Manager Kate Bear said.

"In particular, the way it supports their clients to improve their coordination, balance, muscular development, fitness and communication skills as well as to build relationships with the horses and volunteers.

"It's great to be able to give back and support this work."
