Members of a Cromer disability support charity can look forward to a special Christmas party, thanks to a £200 donation from a local bank.

About With Friends creates opportunities for children and adults with learning disabilities through practical work skills and social activities.

As well as offering disability support, it gives individuals the opportunity to gain new experiences and lets them know that they are re valued.

The donation is part of a nationwide Christmas programme by TSB, which is giving every one of its branches money to gift to a local cause.

Paul Baxter, TSB Aylsham bank manager, said: “It’s fantastic to know that the £200 we are giving them will really make a difference to people spreading some much-needed Christmas cheer in our community.”

Helen Dalton Hare, from About With Friends, said: “It’s great to see a national company supporting the communities they serve at such a local level.”
