M2 EQUITYBITES-February 9, 2015-Santander Foundation donates GBP1,000 to Fareham Voluntary Car Scheme


British provider of financial services Santander UK on Friday reported that Fareham Voluntary Car Scheme has received GBP1,000 from the Santander Foundation.

The donation from the Santander Foundation, which offers grants to UK registered charities for projects which help disadvantaged people in local communities, is expected to help Fareham Voluntary Car Scheme to fund the growth of its volunteer-led hospital transport service.

Funds will be used to help the scheme, which is part of local charity Communitry Action Fareham, to recruit more volunteer drivers and extend the service to more people in the town. The service offers door-to-door transport for people with limited walking ability due to either old age or a disability to get to their appointments.

Branch director at Santander's Fareham branch, Dean Sitch, commented "The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. Our branch is committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting the Fareham Voluntary Car Scheme and hope the donation makes a real difference to local people."
