A healthy boost
TSB picks charity to be its new partner
Cambuslang and Rutherglen’s community health initiative has been nominated as the nominated charity of the local TSB branches
Last week, Healthy ‘n’ Happy community development trust received £318.05, and comes as part of a new partnership formed with the organisation in early April.
The branches manager Ryan Dolan and staff members Gerard McLaughlin and Greg Simpson have already taken part in a Hike It or Bike It fundraiser with all the proceeds contributing to this initial donation.
Ryan said: “I’m delighted to announce Healthy ‘n’ Happy community development trust as our local charity partner in Rutherglen and Cambuslang.
“Our focus at TSB is to serve local customers and businesses in order to fuel local economies, and that’s why we’re launching a new approach to how we support charity and community.”
TSB have been a firm advocate of partnering their branches with local charities on a nationwide scale. In 2014, TSB’s partners raised nearly £290,000 for charities across the UK by holding fundraising events such as cake sales, raffles and sponsored activities.
This year they are now in partnership with 500 local charities.
Assistant director of Healthy ‘n’ Happy, Jane Churchill, revealed the organisation was excited by its new relationship with the bank.
She said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with TSB and are really looking forward to continued collaboration with them.”
Future ways the local TSB branches aim to fundraise for Healthy n Happy include:
