Anger with problems donating at Ipswich bank

PEOPLE can make their own opinions about this.

Staff at Muffin Break Ipswich put a tin on our counter to collect money for the local policeman (Brett Forte) who was recently shot and killed when he was doing his duty.

My staff took the tin to the Westpac bank to deposit it into the fundraising account and they wouldn't accept it because it was all coins.

It had to be bagged and counted.

Whilst I'm all for smooth processes and not wasting time, this was for a charity for a man who lost his life protecting the very people who would not take five minutes out of their day to count the money.

Shame on you, Westpac.
