Bank of New Hampshire Supports Efforts to Open a Gilda Club in Central NH

Laconia, New Hampshire – December 13, 2018 – Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support the efforts of the recently established Gilda’s Club New Hampshire with an initial donation in the amount of $10,000. Imagine a place to go when your life is touched by cancer. A place where mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, partners, grandparents, children, families, co-workers and friends gather to share wisdom and find comfort and strength. Away from the hospital, in a cozy, welcoming clubhouse with an open door to anyone touched by cancer. Where everyone understands your thoughts, feelings and emotions. A place to learn how to live with cancer.

“Bank of New Hampshire strives to make a difference in the community,” stated Paul Falvey, President & CEO for Bank of New Hampshire. “The effort being made by Gilda’s Board of Directors and volunteers is fueled by passion. We look forward to the club house and the impact that it will have for so many here in Central New Hampshire.”


A Gilda’s Club in New Hampshire will create a welcoming community and a place to go for free support for everyone living with cancer along with their families and friends. An essential complement to medical care, their innovative program will provide networking and support groups, workshops, education and social activities.


“The Generous support from Bank of New Hampshire is getting this project off to a very exciting start,” stated Pat Anderson, President for Gilda’s Club New Hampshire. “I have seen the bank do a lot of good in our community. We will work hard to show that their confidence in us is well deserved.”
