It's a bit far from the stereotype of the humorless be-suited banker.
But Glen Innes' Commonwealth bank staff were dressed up like clowns last Friday to raise money for a serious cause.
The Commonwealth raises money through April for the Clown Doctors, which is a not-for-profit that pays comedians to bring humour to a quarter of a million sick kids a year.
The bank branch was decked out all day Friday April 12.
Bank manager Mandy Crisp said the bank has long-standing history dating back two decades.
"Knowing that we can provide support to Clown Doctors in their effort to bring much needed laughter and fun to sick children means a lot to our staff," she said.
"It's also heart-warming to have our local community get behind the effort as well."
