TSB Stroud raises over £500 for Citizens Advice Stroud and Cotswold District

TSB Stroud is pleased to announce that £569 has been raised by Partners and customers for their Local Charity Partner, Citizens Advice Stroud and Cotswold District, since the partnership began in September 2016.

During the partnership, TSB Stroud organised numerous fundraising events such as a hamper prize draw, a book sale and a number of coffee and cake mornings.

The money raised has helped to train and support local volunteer advisors who work to support the local community.

Michelle Noel, Bank Manager, TSB Stroud says: “Our Local Charity Partnership programme is all about working in partnership to help support the local causes that are the lifeblood of many communities across Britain.

“It’s been fantastic to support Citizens Advice which is close to our hearts here in Stroud and everyone working here has found our partnership really rewarding.

“As our partnership with Citizens Advice comes to an end I would like to thank Citizens Advice for the fantastic work it does within its local community and its support as our first Local Charity Partner. I wish them the very best for the future.”

Sally Pickering, Chief Officer at Citizens Advice Stroud and Cotswold District comments: “It has been great to work in partnership with TSB; the team’s support has had a really positive impact on our charity and the work we do here in Stroud.

“The £569 we have raised together is being used to train and supervise our wonderful team of volunteer advisors who work in Stroud to support the local community.”

TSB was built to help hard-working local people and the communities they live in to thrive. To do this, the Bank works in partnership with customers and those in the local community.

That’s why TSB’s branches across Britain are empowered to choose a local cause that matters to them, their customers and their communities instead of having a central ‘charity of the year’, which is common and typical of large organisations.

TSB has given more than £1.7 million to local causes across Britain since its local charity partnerships launched in 2015. This year a record 27,000 nominations were received from local charities across the country to join the programme which sees TSB Partners from 550 branches and eight office sites volunteer and raise money on behalf of the chosen charities.
