TSB Bank in Merry Hill has been working hard fundraising for the Trust's See Saw team. On Tuesday 8th April staff at the bank presented the team with a very generous cheque for £541.99.
The See Saw team provides a service to children and young people with complex healthcare needs and offers support to their families. The kind donation will be paid into the charitable arm of the Trust which aims to provide extra equipment and facilities over and above core NHS services.
The TSB Merry Hill Branch raised the amount by fundraising in the local community. Branch manager Paul Saunders cycled on an exercise bike for three hours and bank staff sold home-baked cakes, and collected money with donation buckets. TSB's sole purpose is to support the surrounding communities and this money will help the See Saw team continue their great work.
Paul Saunders said; "The TSB Merry Hill team has worked hard putting a lot of time and dedication into fundraising. We are really proud to make a difference within the local community and raise the profile of this worthy service".
John Campbell, Chief Operating Officer at the Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust said: "We would like to thank everyone from the TSB Merry Hill staff for all the hard work and effort they put in to raising funds for the Trust's See Saw Team.
"The team do a fantastic job supporting children and young people, and their families, who have life limiting conditions and complex healthcare needs across Dudley. The team are amazed by TSB Merry Hill's dedication and generosity, and are already planning how this money can be used to enhance facilities and experiences for their service users".
