Charity Watches Funding Grow.
A family support charity is set to benefit from funding from its local High Street Bank.
Home Start Telford and Wrekin has been awarded a grant of £5000 from its local branch of Santander. The Santander Foundation Community Grant was set up to help people in the UK in need and provides grants of up to £5,000 to local UK charities or projects.
The charity supports families in Telford who are experiencing times of difficulty and crisis. They recruit and train volunteers who will visit families at home, offering emotional and practical support.
Julia Allinson Fundraising Manager says “ Our partnership with Santander is so valuable to Home-Start. This money will enable us to support further families through some truly challenging times, ensuring they are able to provide their children with the best possible start in life. “
Anna Jones, Personal Banker for Santander has also been on hand to offer volunteers and families assistance in managing their finances and household budget.
