For far too long now banks have taken an absolute beating in the press so it gives me great pleasure to say that I co-hosted an event earlier this month in Westminster celebrating the work of charities supported by the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales and Lloyds Banking Group.
Over the last 25 years, the Lloyds TSB Foundation has supported 49,000 charities and donated over £300m. In the last 3 years alone, the Foundation has awarded over £9.4 million in grants to over 2,000 charities in England and Wales that work with children and young people.
Local or regional charities with an income up to £1million and national charities with an income up to £5 million can find out more about the funding criteria and grant programmes at www.lloydstsbfoundations.org.uk
Lloyds TSB play a huge role in our local economy so it is a pleasure to celebrate a huge success which very rarely gets talked about.
