Branch manager Tara Waters and her team presented a cheque to the Lighthouse charity which, among many other things, provides food parcels to struggling families.

After hearing how the service faces extra demand over winter, the building society decided to help.

The donation to Lighthouse is part of a Christmas initiative seeing The Nottingham share a pot of £10,000 from its recently launched Samuel Fox Foundation, with deserving local causes and organisations across the country nominated by its branches. Funds from the foundation, which is named after the building society’s founder, will support projects and causes that help communities thrive.

Tara said: “I’m really proud to work for a company that actively encourages and empowers its teams to support organisations that matter most in our community.

“We’re over-the-moon to be able to make such a significant contribution to Lighthouse – they’re a fantastic charity and we are happy our donation will help make life a little better for many people who need and deserve our support 
the most this Christmas.”
