It is on again and blankets are needed for the Salvation Army Winter Appeal.

The Victor Harbor branch of the ANZ has been big supporters of the Appeal for many years and is receiving blankets to be then passed on to the local branch of the Salvation Army.

The Winter Appeal at the branch started in June and the response has been "outstanding" according to personal banker and co-ordinator Mel Beckett.

"Blankets are needed for those who are disadvantaged. It is amazing that so many people want to help," Mel said.

"We live in a very giving community and in fact people were coming into the bank to ask when we were starting. You do not have to bank ANZ to be involved.

"We do this to give back to this very generous community. We get people from all over the Fleurieu Peninsula helping those who need assistance."

The Victor Harbor branch of the ANZ has a great relationship with the Salvation Army, as it also runs the very popular Christmas Appeal each year along with the Winter Appeal.

When the box in the bank is full of blankets, the bank calls the Salvation Army and they come and pick up the items to then be distributed.

The Victor Harbor branch of the ANZ is located on the corner of Coral and Torrens streets.
