A bank has handed over £1,000 to a charity that supports unemployed people.

Toolbar, based in Bourne, received the money from the Lloyds community fund.

The charity was nominated by staff at the Bourne branch of the bank, and won the most votes from members of the public to secure the grant.

Lead volunteer Roy McKinney said: “The Lloyds bank community fund will make a huge difference to Toolbar by enabling us to continue helping unemployed people in their search for work, and to make a positive difference to their lives when they are successful”

Toolbar was set up in early 2009. It aims to help recently unemployed people by helping them with their search for work, with a range of different types of support, including help with CV preparation, letters of application, interview skills and career planning. Toolbar meets every Monday from 10.30am to midday at the Bourne Snooker Centre.
