Bank of Melbourne staff members Jason Kiker and Jodie Keir will take part in the Tangle event at Shepparton's Victoria Park Lake this weekend.
Shepparton bankers will take a day off untangling financial problems to get tangled up in yarn this week.
Five Bank of Melbourne staff members will help children create a giant tower of colourful yarn during one of the first events of the 2014 SheppARTon Festival.
The bank’s Shepparton-based mobile lending manager Jodie Keir said staff were looking forward to getting tied up in the show Tangle Melbourne-based company Polyglot Theatre was presenting.
‘‘My team and I will be getting involved in all the action, helping the kids create something very special for the local community. It’s certainly a big change from our usual work at the branch,’’ Ms Keir said.
The Polyglot Theatre show involves weaving elastic thread around 24 specially golden constructed towers.
Tangle is billed as ‘‘part spectacular live art, part performance, part playground and all chaos’’.
The theatre company has been hosting Tangle workshops this month with Shepparton’s Berry Street foster care playgroups.
Ms Keir said Bank of Melbourne staff were keen to get involved.
‘‘We’re really looking forward to seeing what the kids create,’’ she said.
Shepparton Bank of Melbourne branch manager Jason Kiker said the bank had helped bring the Tangleproject to Shepparton through a $15
‘‘It could be for a new park, or a vegie patch or disability access, all sorts of things,’’ he said.
Mr Kiker encouraged groups to check eligibility at http://info.bankofmelbourne.com.au/neighbourhood-fund/ or drop into the Shepparton branch at 201 Maude St.
