customers and staff at Ulster Bank in Larne raised a cuppa recently and, in the process, helped to make a difference to Northern Ireland Hospice.
A donation of £100 provided through the Ulster Bank Local Community Fund was added to £54.26 raised in a coffee morning held in the branch with home baked buns and biscuits provided by Ulster Bank staff. The community fund was established to assist local communities and charities in need of funds.
Lorna Foster, Larne branch manager, said: “Ulster Bank has a long history of helping in our local communities and Northern Ireland Hospice is such a worthwhile cause.
“The banking hall was busy during our coffee morning and the customers really appreciated a cuppa and a home baked bun or biscuit.
“The whole team has rallied together and we have been honoured to help where we can.”
Receiving the donation, corporate and trust fundraiser, Ellen Hillen, said: “Northern Ireland Hospice is delighted to receive continued support from Ulster Bank.
“Hospice care is free and is provided in the person’s own home or in our Adult or Children’s Hospice and every pound donated really does make a difference to the families receiving support.”
