Bank donates £3,000 to mental health charity

The Umbrella Centre in St Peter's Place is receiving £3,000 from the TSB

TSB has awarded a £3,000 donation to the Umbrella Centre in Canterbury’s St Peter’s Place.

The mental health charity will use the money to fund an employment project called Skills Building.

It will train centre users kitchen skills to raise their work prospects and general confidence.

Anna De-Brauwer, manager at the Canterbury Umbrella Centre, said: “We are very grateful to TSB because the funds and their support are helping us deliver really important services in Canterbury and the local area.

“Having major businesses like TSB supporting us locally is a great way of making our local community stronger.”

The money for the Umbrella Centre comes from TSB’s Local Community Fund programme which aims to provide financial support for grass roots charities and organisations.

Bola Gibson, head of community at TSB, said: “TSB is all about people helping people.

“Through our Local Charity Partnership programme and the TSB Local Community Fund we want to support local charities that do so much to help our communities thrive.

“Our research highlights just how important it is for local charities to get the support they need.

“The Canterbury Umbrella Centre is a fantastic charity that makes a huge difference to lots of people in the local area and I’m delighted we’ve been able to support their valuable work with this donation.”
