Children in Holt who care for family who are disabled or terminally-ill were able to celebrate Christmas this year - with the support of the local community.

The town's branch of the TSB bank donated £125 to Holt Youth Project to help them to give young carers a Christmas party.

The donation was part of a nationwide community pride donation programme by TSB, to help local causes that bring the community together, or need a little extra support during the festive season.

Lee Thornton, manager at TSB in Holt, said: 'Being part of our local community is really important to us at TSB and so we're delighted to be able to help Holt Youth Project with this donation.

'We chose to donate this money to Holt Youth Project because of the important work they do to give a Christmas party to children and young people in the local community who are caring for parents/family members who are disabled or terminally-ill.'
