The Banks’ networks of over 340 branches, 74 Financial Solutions Centres and their head offices will be matched with individual local hospice charities, and their employees will be able to participate in local volunteering and fundraising activities.The partnership will include corporate donations, staff volunteering programmes and community partnerships focusing on numeracy and financial literacy.Maxine Blunden, director of fundraising at Help the Hospices, said: “There will be four nationally co-ordinated, themed focus months for fundraising spread throughout the year starting with a big community-focused kick-off in the run-up to Easter. The Banks already have a well-established and successful employee volunteering programme so we are confident there will be substantial and widespread engagement with local hospices”.The Banks’ previous three-year relationship with the British Heart Foundation raised more than £500,000. Help the Hospices was chosen from a shortlist of eight charities that met the banks’ corporate community investment criteria.www.ybonline.co.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
