'To be one of two winners from the whole Bournemouth region was fantastic' said chairman of the Friends of Saumarez Park Playground, Zef Eisenberg. 'We are very pleased to have been selected to receive the valuable £5,000 contribution to the Saumarez Park Playground.

Lloyds TSB Offshore business development manager, Craig Duquemin said the playground would benefit the whole community 'Becoming the best Bank for customers means being the best bank for our communities.
