The TSB branches in South and West Yorkshire have set out an awareness and fundraising mission to help support CLIC Sargent.
The 18 TSB branches taking part have had a charity stall for the whole of December and staff have been taking part in different fundraising activities to raise funds in support of children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Every branch also donated new toys for the children at Leeds General Infirmary, with the TSB area director and branch managers presenting the gifts to the children at the centre.
Dave Smith, TSB area director for south and west Yorkshire, says: "After supporting the charity earlier this year for their Wig Wednesday campaign and helping to raise over £250,000, I’m really proud to support them again and not just in terms of fundraising, but also in raising awareness for the great services they offer families and providing something tangible for the children to have at Christmas.
“I’ve seen the difference CLIC Sargent makes to the lives of children and young people with cancer and their families. It reduces the stress and isolation, which children and young people particularly feel, and helps everyone make sense of a cancer diagnosis and cope with the emotional impact on their everyday lives.
“We really want to encourage members of the community to go into their local TSB branch and visit one of our charity stalls to find out for themselves what good work the charity does and join in the fundraising activities.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Stephen Jackett said: "We are absolutely thrilled that Dave and his TSB branches have chosen to support us once more and not just in terms of the pounds we raise but in terms of getting the message out there about the good work we do to communities we wouldn't normally have access to.
"We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that has gone into organising the events - every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families."
