Local bank deepen their roots by planting trees

Since this year marks 30 years of the First National Bank (FNB) logo and name, the bank planted Acia trees around the country, last week.

The FNB Coastal Cluster planted Acacia trees at Walvis Bay Private School where the Learners Representative Committee named the tree ‘Frikkie.”

More Acacia trees were also planted at Swakopmund Primary School, Arandis Primary School, and in Henties Bay at Kwamwandi Junior Combined School.

The Far North cluster planted 10 trees (3 Acacia and 7 others) along one of the main roads in Okahao and the team partnered with the fire fighters of the Okahao Town Council.

The Treasury department of FNB Namibia also participated in the FNB Brand birthday celebrations by planting a tree at the Hope Village in Greenwell Matongo Katutura. This place is home to more than 90 children, from infants to young adults. Hope Village has been Treasury’s chosen charity for 2017.

On 30 September 1987 our logo and name were born. In commemoration of our very iconic brand, our branches across the country planted Acacia trees at various locations as a lasting symbol of the brand. The Acacia tree in our logo is a representation of our history. Our roots run deep, and we have grown thanks to our commitment to serving the needs of our clients and communities. The tree also symbolises prosperity and growth for the communities we serve and for the whole country,” said Madri van Wyk, Marketing Manager at FNB Namibia.
