Exmouth’s TSB has given a helping hand to Exmouth Gateway – the local social group for adults with learning disabilities.

The bank has donated £100 to the self-funded group, and is aiming to raise a further £1,000 during 2018.

Part of a nationwide Christmas donation programme by TSB for local causes, the donation will help towards buying a bus for Gateway.

Kate Stevens – TSB’s local manager – presented the cheque at Gateway’s recent nativity play at Exmouth’s Holy Trinity Church.

“We’re delighted to be able to help Exmouth Gateway with this donation,” said Raj Panesar, TSB Exmouth’s bank manager.

“It’s fantastic to know that the £100 will make a difference to adults with learning disabilities in our local community.”

Gateway’s Paul Baldwin thanked TSB, saying that its “donation is helping us share the Christmas cheer by supporting in our aim to eventually buy a bus to help take all our members on days out”.
