A Kettering bank has continued to raise money for good causes and raised £1,000 from a charity evening at the end of last month.

HSBC Bank has been raising funds all year to help Macmillan Cancer Support, and arranged a classical charity concert at the branch in High Street.

Kettering soprano Anna Thurland – who has subsequently released her first download classical album – donated her time to perform at the event, which also featured a raffle and auction on the evening and managed to raise £1,000.

Senior customer services officer Samantha Haas, who organised the event, said: “It was a hugely successful evening and our customers thoroughly enjoyed it and have requested an encore for next year.

“We previously hosted a concert in spring of this year, raising more than £600.”
