Nationwide helps vulnerable people in Basingstoke

18 May 2020

Basingstoke’s Nationwide Bank in Festival Place has become a donation drop off point to help vulnerable people in the community.

The bank is collecting dried food, tinned goods, nappies and toys, in an initiative instigated by Nationwide Membership Representative Char Forder.

 

Customers and members of staff collect the donations which are then delivered to local charity Spotlight, which helps children and young people, their families and carers who are suffering from terminal illness or mental or physical illness.

 

Centre Director Neil Churchill said: “We’re extremely grateful for everything our retailers and operational teams are doing for the local community during these uncertain times.

 

“We consider ourselves at the heart of Basingstoke and although the centre is closed apart from the few essential stores and banks that are needed in the community, we’re still here to help when we can.”
