TSB Local Community Charitable Partner nomination Terms & Conditions

TSB Bank plc wants to support the local economy around our branches and administrative sites. In TSB branches and on tsb.co.uk, members of the public can nominate local organisations for the chance to become one of the TSB Charitable Partners which will benefit from our support.

a) If an organisation becomes a TSB Charitable Partner, the TSB branch or site that has chosen to support the organisation (the "relevant TSB branch") will agree with the Charitable Partner how best to support them. This may involve TSB staff in the relevant TSB branch:

  • undertaking fundraising activities to raise money for the Charitable Partner
  • volunteering their time with the Charitable Partner
  • supporting awareness raising activities in the local area

b) The relevant participating TSB branch will aim to raise an agreed sum or donate a number of volunteering hours, but there is no guarantee they will do so.

a) You don't need to be a TSB customer or pay anything, but you do need to be resident in the UK and aged 18 or over to nominate.

b) You can nominate as many eligible organisations as you wish between 9.00am on 09 May 2016 and 5.00pm on 30 May 2016, but you can only nominate an organisation once.

c) TSB Partners, their family members, or anyone else connected with the TSB Charitable Partner initiative may submit nominations.
