Nottingham Panthers player Ollie Betteridge helped present a £250 donation from The Nottingham to a charity that supports vulnerable people in the Mansfield area.

Ollie visited the building society’s recently-refurbished branch on Stockwell Gate and also met fans.

As well as signing autographs and posing for photographs, Ollie officially reopened the state-of-the-art premises, which include a space exclusively for community use, before joining staff in handing over the cheque and a signed Panthers shirt to Jigsaw Support Scheme.

The Nottingham’s Mansfield team have been supporters of Jigsaw for several years, raising hundreds of pounds for the charity.

The Nottingham are main sponsors and official building society of the Nottingham Panthers.

“The Nottingham are a building society which prides itself on being at the heart of the communities in which it has branches,” said Ollie.

“It was a pleasure to go along and not only see first-hand how fantastic the new branch environment looks and feels, but to also meet some of our ardent fans and play a part in the building society’s support for a fantastic charity. It was a great event.”

Local leader at The Nottingham, Lisa Pilgrim, added: “It was fantastic to celebrate the refurbishment of the branch in this way, and to be able to give something back to the community in the process —something that is very much part of our ethos.”
