BSP supports Red Shield Appeal

Bank South Pacific (BSP) has raised its hand to support the Salvation Army in Papua New Guinea with a sponsorship K20,000 towards the Red Shield Appeal.

The bank recognises and supports the worthy efforts of the Salvation Army in PNG, and is pleased to contribute to this cause.

In presenting BSP’s support, Group General Manager – Retail Banking, Paul Thornton said, “We value People and Community, which are two of the Bank’s values that we share. We value relationships that are built and pleased to support organisations that share the same vision and deliver lasting changes in the communities.”

The Bank presented the cheque last Thursday towards the annual fundraising event, which will assist the charity organisation to carry out their humanitarian programs. 

Salvation Army Papua New Guinea Territorial Commander, Andrew Westrupp, thanked the Bank for supporting the Red Shield Appeal. 

“The support by BSP is very much appreciated as Salvation Army relies heavily on the support from civil society and corporate partners to fund our activities throughout the country. This will go a long way in enabling we continue our work in the areas of Community Development, Health and Hygiene, Education, Welfare and Disaster Response and Relief,” Colonel Westrupp said. 

“The Red Shield Appeal has been in existence for almost 30 years, having commenced during the early 1980's.”
