Bank­ing on help for home­less

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Staff at TSB in Ash­ford and Can­ter­bury have an­nounced their sup­port for home­less char­ity Catch­ing Lives.

Teams from both branches agreed to sup­port the char­ity as part of the bank’s Part­ners Across Bri­tain scheme, and will be rais­ing money through­out 2015.

Sarah Chesterton, Donna Bald­win and Kathy Brit­tle pre­sented the first cheque for £200 last week, and are now gear­ing up for more events this year.

Branch man­ager Donna Bald­win said: “Catch­ing Lives do some amaz­ing work in the area and it was re­ally im­por­tant to us to pick a Char­ity Part­ner that gives so much back to the com­mu­nity.

“We can’t wait to get our fundrais­ing off the ground and work to­gether to make a real im­pact lo­cally.”

The scheme will also see staff from the branches spend­ing a day work­ing with Catch­ing Lives vol­un­teers out in the com­mu­nity.

Catch­ing Lives gen­eral man­ager Terry Gore said: “I’m re­ally ex­cited to see this lo­cal part­ner­ship get off the ground. I’m sure that TSB can help us to make a real dif­fer­ence to our lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
