Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust (LHCRT) will be supported by the city’s branch of TSB during the coming year.

The company has given more than £1.7million to local good causes across Britain since launching its local charity partnerships scheme in 2015.

Christopher Hunt, TSB’s Lichfield branch manager, said: “Our programme is all about working in partnership to help support the local causes that are the lifeblood of many communities across Britain.

“It’s what we’re all about at TSB as we enter into our third year of supporting a local charity here in Lichfield.

“I am thrilled to welcome Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust as our new Local Charity Partner which is close to our hearts here in Lichfield – we can’t wait to get started.”

LHCRT chair Christine Bull said the group was delighted to receive the company’s backing.

“Their support will make a really positive impact on our charity and the work we do here in Lichfield,” she said.

The trust is currently campaigning to raise £1million to build a tunnel under the cross-city railway line.

If the David Suchet Tunnel Vision appeal is successful the work will be carried out in 2020, at the same time as a tunnel is constructed to take the proposed Lichfield Southern Bypass extension under the line. It has already raised £400,000 towards the £1million target.
