BNZ Closed for Good
If you are unfamiliar with with Closed for Good, it is a fantastic initiative created by the awesome team at Bank of New Zealand (BNZ). Each year they give all 5500 of their staff a paid day off to help out in their local community, closing almost all of their bank branches and offices to make it happen.
Every year a number of Lions Clubs are beneficiaries of their staffs awesome volunteer help, and this year was no different.
Both the Lions Clubs Marketing Team and the BNZ Closed for Good team got thinking after the 2017 Closed for Good Day and wanted to create an even more special opportunity for both Lions Clubs and also the team at BNZ.
BNZ have offered to promote Lions Clubs New Zealand project to all 5500 of their staff and supply a second paid day off to all employees to get involved with a Lions Club Project of their choice, and at their discretion. How cool is that??!
With the potential to be putting out over $200,000 in paid days off, we want to thank BNZ for the awesome opportunity and getting us involved with such an awesome programme.
