Following another successful round of their Building Better Communities Program, Bernardi's have donated $5,000 to three worthy Forbes organisations.

Thanks to customers allocating tokens to their chosen beneficiary, Forbes Fins Swimming Club was awarded $2,500, St Laurence's P&F were awarded $1,500 and Forbes Junior Rugby Union was awarded $1000.

The initiative is designed to get customers involved in the sponsorship process, and to give them ownership over who Bernardi's support as a business.

"We're thrilled to support these three organisations, each of whom play a significant role in the community," Bernardi's Co-CEO Joe Bernardi said.

This donation will make up part of the $50,000 that will be donated in 2020 across the Bernardi's five stores.

They have donated over $650,000 to local communities since 2011.

The funds will help Forbes Platypi Juniors provide training and development for players.

St Laurence's will used the funds to help install a new, inclusive, playground incorporating imaginative play, sensory gym and physical fitness components.

The money donated to the Forbes Fins will help the club with equipment and resources to keep up with the club's growth.

The Forbes Learning Ladder, the Jenny Murphy Park project and Red Bend Junior Rugby League were the recipients of the last round of funding.

In the next round of Building Better Communities Program, you can support the community organisations: Forbes Toy Library Forbes and District Soccer Club and the Forbes Sportsperson of the Year Association.
