THE MALVERN Hills Foodbank has received a £200 cash boost from the town’s TSB branch to help people in need over the Christmas period.
TSB’s donation is part of a nationwide scheme to provide a little extra support at this time of year to make sure no-one in the community goes hungry during the festive season.
So far the High Street bank has given more than £1.7million to causes across Britian since its charity partnership launched in 2015.
Lucy Bailey, bank manager at TSB Malvern, said: “We’re delighted to be able to help Malvern Hills Foodbank with this donation.
“We chose to give this money to Malvern Hills Foodbank because we know that the team really need support over the Christmas period.
“It’s fantastic to know that the £200 we are giving them will really make a difference to people in our local community.”
Peter Buchanan, chairman of Malvern Hills Foodbank, added: “We would all like to be in a society where foodbanks are not needed, but in the meantime we are enormously grateful to TSB Malvern for the team’s support.
“This will enable us to provide Christmas hampers to those who may have to make incredibly hard decisions between presents for the children or food or even more debt.
“The Malvern Hills Foodbank is run entirely by volunteers and so all donations are used to benefit directly those in need or to cover essential costs which we keep to a minimum.”
