"The Bank of Dave" gives back!

6:00am 5th December 2014

Since opening in September 2011, Burnley Savings and Loans Ltd have been keen to support charities and a huge variety of different good causes. As such, "Bank on Dave!" not only assist people and local businesses who are unable to borrow from the high street banks, but also pledge to donate profits made to charity.

In 2013, they donated over £20,000.00 to good causes, including the Pendleside Hospice, Parkinsons UK, the Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Histiocytosis Research Trust, to name a few.

Roll on 12 months, and "Bank on Dave!" are at it again! In 2014, they've announce that they've beaten last year's donation total, and have donated well over £25,000.00 to charities, and have helped raise awareness for countless organisations and good causes.

Among them, Guide Dog's for the blind, Blessing in Disguise, the Canalside Community Association, Team RISE project, Petal Cancer Research, Holidays with Help, and Derian House Children's Hospice.

The team have also assisted Lisa Duckworth in creating more awareness for people suffering from anxiety and depression, and Lianne Taylor in raising funds for the Pendleside Hospice, and hope to continue this into the New Year.

Donations are taking place this week and Dave Fishwick could not be happier with the efforts. "We set up the Bank of Dave to make a difference to as many people's lives as possible," he says. "We receive hundreds of applications and requests from charities, organisations that help thousands of people on a daily basis, and being able to help so many of these worthwhile causes is an amazing feeling and one that we are all very proud of."

Dave Fishwick says huge credit goes to David  Henshaw and the whole bank of Dave team.

Next year they intend to give even more money away to great causes In Lancashire.
