TSB and its customers in Dunblane have raised £161 for The Dunblane Centre, by holding a 'Name the Famous Couples' Quiz in April. The Dunblane Centre was chosen as the Bank’s first Local Charity Partner.
Instead of having a centrally chosen Charity of the Year, TSB Partners across Britain are empowered to recognise local causes which share the Bank’s passion for helping local communities thrive. The Dunblane Centre was nominated for the work it does in the local community and will benefit from fundraising activities by TSB Partners working in the area throughout 2015.
Catherine Gunn, Bank Manger at TSB Dunblane, said 'The Dunblane Centre is a vital part of our local community and we are really proud to have them as our Local Charity Partner.'
Stewart Prodger, Trustee for The Dunblane Centre, said 'We are hugely grateful to TSB Dunblane for the money they are raising in 2015. Having major businesses like TSB supporting us locally is a great way of making our community stronger.'
Notes to editors: As well as applications from charities and community enterprises, TSB Partners and the public were able to make their own nominations of local causes to include in the process. Each nomination which met the eligibility criteria was entered into a random draw and given a fair chance of being selected.
