LLoyds TSB Smith Street branch celebrations benefit nine charities

March 7th, 2013 by Lloyds TSB Offshore Ltd

The building was opened on 4 March 1893 and to celebrate the anniversary, Lloyds TSB ran a completion for 12 customers to win £120 to give to the charity of their choice.

“The Smith Street branch is one of St Peter Port’s most iconic buildings and we wanted to celebrate its 120 th birthday with the people who have played an integral part in the success of the company,”Mike Starkey, island director, said.

“We had a big box of entries to draw the winners from and it was fantastic to see the range of charities which our customers have chosen. Some of the charities are well known to us and have benefited from staff fundraising or the Lloyds TSB Foundation but some were new. We’re glad that these deserving charities can benefit from our success serving the island,” he said.

Les Bourgs Hospice was chosen by three of the winners, the Guernsey Sailing Trust by two and the other nominated charities were Home Start, The Guernsey Blind Association, Bulstrode House, Guernsey Cheshire Home, Cancer Research, the GSPCA and Changing Faces.

All of the winning customers will also receive a bottle of champagne.

As well as the competition, customers were offered complimentary refreshments and an exhibition showing the history of the building and the bank will remain on display in the banking until the end of the month.

Tim Cooke, islands director for Lloyds TSB, said “during the past 120 years, the branch has served thousands of islanders who use our Personal, Private and Premier Banking services. We are proud to been at the heart of St Peter Port for more than a century and look forward to remaining part of the community for many years to come.”
