A BURY charity has received vital funding from staff at Santander Ramsbottom.

Jan Katana from Bury Cancer Support Centre received the cheque for £2,450 raised by the Santander team, headed by Trina Buxton, who were actively involved in a Summer Ball fundraising event at the Village Hotel, Bury in August.

Kelly Tattersall, Branch Manager at Santander’s Ramsbottom branch, said: "Our branch is very proud to have been able to support with fundraising.

"We were overjoyed to have raised such a substantial amount for a very worthy cause."

The funding will allow the support centre to continue providing life changing support to patients, family and carers whose lives are affected by cancer.

Ms Katana thanked everyone at Santander for their continued support and recognition of work at the centre.
