Marie-Anne Eckersall, Communications & Fundraising Co-Ordinator at Transport for Sick Children, said:

“We’re thrilled to be given such a large donation from the Vernon Building Society Community Stars fund.

“As a small charity covering Greater Manchester, this will make a big difference, allowing us and our volunteer drivers to support more families who are struggling to attend vital medical appointments for their children.”

Tanasè Rivers, Head of Marketing, Brand and Culture, added:

“Vernon is committed to supporting the amazing groups, charities and not-for-profits that help make Stockport the fantastic place it is.

“We are thrilled to provide funding to these five brilliant local organisations through our Community Stars scheme.

“It’s not too late to nominate your favourite charity or non-for-profit group our next vote will be at the end of September – Show us the causes close to your heart in our wonderful community.”
