Sioned Edwards, the bank's commercial banking director for north Wales, said: "My team are always so enthusiastic when it comes to community volunteering. We know that what we do genuinely makes a difference to these charities and the local people who rely on them. We're delighted that Llandudno's shoppers dipped into their pockets and helped us to raise over £1,000. Thanks also to Marks & Spencer for having us along."

Ty Gobaith, which opened in 2004, provides respite care to more than 70 terminally ill children and their families from across north Wales. St Kentigern's provides daily care for up to 15 patients and also runs an eight-bed inpatient unit in a relaxed, homely enviornment. The centre has cared for more than 5,000 patients and their families over the last 15 years.
