Ryan Campbell, CEO of Demelza Hospice Care for Children commented, “Kent Reliance has supported Demelza since we opened in 1998 and we have enjoyed working together on a range of fundraising activities.  This year, we celebrate our 20th year anniversary as a charity and today we launch into a new partnership with this amazing bank. Our joint aim is to raise a phenomenal £60,000 over the course of the next five years for the children and families we support. We look forward to working with the team at Kent Reliance and would like to thank everyone who will be a part of helping us achieve this.”

Samantha Hopkins, Savings Product Manager at Kent Reliance said, “We feel honoured to work with Demelza Hospice Care for Children and look forward to helping the children and families they support on a daily basis through this new account. Encouraging children to save is an essential step in their financial education and this new account encourages the savings habit at an early age.  To commemorate our partnership and Demelza’s 20th anniversary, a number of children who open this account in branch, will receive a special teddy bear. There are only a limited number of bears available, on a first come first served basis. These are wonderful reminders of the fantastic work that Demelza carries out within our local community.”
