LOCAL charities stand to benefit from an outstanding initiative aimed at raising funds through the sale of the first Ku-ring-gai edition of Monopoly.

The limited edition version of the iconic boardgame has raised more than $60,000 since launching in October.

With only 200 Ku-ring-gai Monopoly games left, the project is set to enable substantial donations to Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury, KYDS Youth Development Services, the Hornsby Kuring-gai Women’s Shelter and St Lucy’s School.

The project is the brainchild of the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank and is supported by Ku-ringgai Council, local businesses and residents. Ku-ring-gai Monopoly features places of interest and real estate such as Wahroonga Park, Mona Vale Rd and Echo Point, with Community Chest and Chance cards reflecting the Ku-ring-gai community.

It can be purchased at tlcbb.com.au/monopoly or at either of the Community Bank branches.
