KIND-hearted bank staff in Greenock are opening their doors to help local charities this Christmas.

Nationwide Building Society has launched their Christmas appeal to support four good causes.

They will be collecting toys, food, toiletries and cash donations in aid of the most vulnerable in Inverclyde.

This year the West Blackhall Street branch is helping Children in Poverty Inverclyde, Inverclyde Foodbank, Women's Aid and Compassionate Inverclyde.

Staff member Kirsty Donnelly said: "We always get such a great response and this year we want to help as many people as possible."

To help the local charities, they are accepting donations during branch opening hours.
