ASB Good as Gold is an ASB initiative recognising, rewarding and helping wonderful people in our community.
This Christmas, we asked our ASB team to nominate customers who dedicate themselves to their community, have a passion for life against all odds as well as those in times of hardship that deserve something golden in their lives.
“It’s unnerving just to stand on the side of the road and look at your feet. You’ve got your jandals, your shorts and tee shirt, and after 50 years of life that’s all you have left...”
The Pearce family has a heart of gold. As proud members of the Blenheim community, they’re the type of family who always put their hand up to help. Tragically they recently lost their house to fire, including all of their prized possessions and belongings. After overcoming other challenges including illnesses, their family remains strong. They’ve showed incredible spirit in the face of such adversity.
Our Blenheim branch couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of a break, and wanted to make sure the Pearce family was looked after. We hope that our gift of $10,000 can help bring them a merry Christmas.
