Making Memories… Giving Hope

Santander shows support for CHICKS


We want to say a big thank you to the Plymouth branch of Santander Bank which has been supporting us for the last two years.

Our annual winter ball in November ball raised an impressive total of over £27,000, and Santander staff volunteered on the night selling raffle tickets, resulting in Santander Foundation matching the £3500 their staff raised. 

Regional fundraiser, Sarah Roberts, said: “It was a really brilliant evening, and I was delighted to see so many local supporters come along and have fun, whilst raising money for CHICKS. I’d like to say a huge thanks to Santander for their generous support on the night and throughout the year”  

The bank also gives us support on a couple of our projects during the year; for the last two years members from the branch have helped us plant trees in the woodland area at our  moorland retreat in Brentor. The branch has also run its own fundraising events for CHICKS, hosting a bake sale which made over £100!

Matthew Bishop, Select Manager Santander, said: “We are delighted that we have been able to support a charity that makes a difference to the lives of to so many young people.”
