STAFF from an Oswestry bank have helped raised over £1,000 for charity

Members of TSB, along with the support of customers have raised £1,269.55 for Severn Hospice by holding various events in branch over the last year.

Most recently they joined over 120 other staff members and their families from local branches to climb Snowdon to raise funds for local good causes.

The funds raised will be used to give specialist care and support to families across Shropshire and north Powys who are living with an incurable illness.

Alexandra Honey, Branch Manager at TSB in Oswestry, said: “Severn Hospice is a vital part of our local community and we’re really proud to have them as our local charity partner. We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support.”

“Our team in Oswestry have worked hard putting in a lot of time and dedication to make our fundraising a success.

"We have really enjoyed it and it is fantastic to know the difference that our efforts will make.”

Meanwhile Mike Perry, community fundraising officer for Severn Hospice, added: “We are hugely grateful to TSB and its local partners in Oswestry.

"The money they are raising and the general support we’re getting is helping us to deliver important services in Oswestry.

"Having major businesses like TSB supporting us locally is a great way of making our community stronger.”
