Purple Patch: Santander presents appeal with donation through its Community Plus grants fund.

BANKING giant Santander was delighted to make a deposit of its own for the North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal.

The money came from the Santander Foundation’s Community Plus grant scheme after the appeal was nominated by James Rowles, website manager for Northern Devon Healthcare Trust.

“Community Plus allows our staff and customers to nominate local charities that are most in need of assistance,” said Santander Barnstaple branch manager Lisa Tollett.

“We are delighted to be supporting the Chemotherapy Appeal and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people.”
