David Lownds, Head of Operations said;
"I am delighted with the number of Hanley savers that have opened a Douglas Macmillan Hospice saver in the since being made available.
There is a real synergy between the Hanley and the Hospice and this has been evidenced by savers who really like the idea of having a safe place to save whilst being able to support such a worthwhile local cause."
Liz Clarke, Head of Fundraising said;
"We're delighted to hear 200 Dougie Mac saver accounts have now been opened, and would like to thank Hanley Economic Building Society and their customers for their continued support.
