The Jubilee Centre's senior citizens club receives a cheque for £125 from TSB Berwick.

The donation is part of a nationwide community pride donation programme by TSB, to help local causes that bring the community together, or need a little extra support during the festive season.

Ken Punton, manager at TSB in Berwick said: “Being part of our local community is really important to us at TSB and so we’re delighted to be able to help Jubilee Centre Senior Citizens’ Club with this donation.

“We chose to donate this money to Jubilee Centre Senior Citizens’ Club because of the important work they do to provide Christmas dinners to senior citizens here in Berwick upon Tweed.”

In total TSB will be donating over £47,000 through the programme to causes across Britain.

TSB understands that no one knows their local community better than the people who live there, and supporting local communities is at the heart of everything TSB does.

That’s why the bank set up its community pride scheme, allowing its branches and office sites to apply for a donation to give to a local cause that matters to them and their customers during the festive period.

And instead of having one, centrally chosen, ‘charity of the year’, TSB partners with local charities. Each year customers, members of the public and Partners who work for the Bank can nominate a charity that they would like their local TSB to support. Branches and office sites then selected their Local Charity Partner from the three organisations that received the most nominations.

Since the programme launched in 2015 TSB has partnered with over 900 local charities across Britain, giving them over £1 million through fundraising and donations.

TSB has also partnered with Pride of Britain and Pride of Sport, to celebrate ordinary people, like those working in local charities, doing extraordinary things in local communities all over the country.
