With customers also dipping into their pockets at NatWest branches, the bank raised £3,097 for the fund.

Mark Douglas, retail regional director for Wales, said: "I didn't have much trouble getting everyone on board for this fundraising. As someone born and bred in Neath, I'm well aware how this tragedy has affected the local community. We wanted to do our bit to show our support to the families who lost their loved ones at the colliery in September."
