THE Noosa News 'We love Noosa' campaign for the month of February has proved a huge success, with about 5000 entries in the 'We Love Noosa' boxes.

Noosa News manager Sue Swan thanked everyone who participated.

"We are over the moon at the success of this campaign, that helps both business and community enjoy their local shopping," she said.

Prize winners of a $1000 Bendigo Bank account were drawn last Thursday at Tewantin and Cooroy Bendigo Bank branches.

Winner Caroline McNaughton, a CWA member, had just completed modelling for a Katie Rose Hospice fundraiser when she heard the news.

"I make the chutneys, jams, lemon butter and pickles for our CWA stalls," she said.

"And the money will contribute to the ingredients I use to make them."

Cooroy winner Alison Duggan had the same generous sentiment as Caroline.

Besides helping out with funds to see her daughter in the Northern Territory, some will go to an overseas education.

"I sponsor a child in Vanuatu and they're building a much-needed school at the moment," she said.

And while Bendigo Bank has certainly made greater Noosa locals happy - it has also succeeded on the national stage.

Bendigo Bank has been named Business Bank of the Year (2011) at Roy Morgan Research's inaugural Customer Satisfaction Awards.

The accolade follows the bank recording the highest business customer satisfaction score in the Roy Morgan December survey, with a rating of 75.4%. This was almost six points ahead of its nearest competitor.

Tewantin Community Bank branch manager Wayne Hoens said the customer and industry recognition came after many years of hard work by the group's dedicated business banking staff.

"We've come a long way since out first Business Banking offering launched in February 1996," Mr Hoens said.

"The results and the award demonstrate our efforts to deliver industry-leading customer service are valued by the community. In addition to this, we continue to outperform the big four in business customer satisfaction.

"This is another pleasing result and on behalf of the bank and all our staff, I would like to say thank you to our business customers for their continued support," he said.

Mr Hoens said the bank's business banking team was made up of almost 300 dedicated staff across Australia, with many of its people able to provide specialist advice and a wide range of services.

Mr Jean is an active member of Queensland Koala Crusaders and volunteers a lot of time taking locals/tourist around Noosa National Park, showing them our few remaining Koalas and Mr Cuddles played an integral role in this undertaking.  There have been so many people, worldwide, who through Mr Cuddles went away with a better understanding of our Koalas, their habits, what they liked to eat, what their favourite trees are, and what they mean to local people... he will be missed by all.
