A national bank has been showing its support for the local community by raising money for South Yorkshire’s only children’s hospice, Bluebell Wood.
In a bid to raise funds for the North Anston based hospice, TSB embarked on a national campaign which involved 308 cuddly teddy bears, 54 bear names, 154 TSB branches and raised nearly £9,000 for the hospice, which provides care and support for children with a shortened life expectancy.
Bluebell Wood sent teddy bears to 154 TSB branches in Northern England and the ‘Name and Claim’ game as it’s known, involved TSB customers paying £1 to guess the name of two bears from a grid of 54 bear names.
Dave Smith, area director of TSB, South and West Yorkshire said: “TSB prides itself on supporting its local community and it has been a pleasure to work with our partners and customers to raise almost £9,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.”
Rachael Dawes, corporate fundraiser at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: “We have received an incredible amount of support from TSB so far.” “We are really looking forward to working with them in the foreseeable future,” she added.
