Celebrating 100 years in the UK

State Bank of India has sponsored a tree in Lowlands Recreation Ground in Harrow, to celebrate 100 Years of the State Bank of India operating in the UK. (1921-2021).

State Bank of India (SBI) is a multinational public sector bank with branches in 36 countries, and

SBI is the largest Indian bank in the UK, with branches in Coventry, Birmingham, London, Leicester, Manchester, and Wolverhampton.

The Harrow branch has been open for 3 years.

A year-round show

Branch manager Arun was able to watch the tree being planted in the Spring, and is delighted with the Field Maple that has been planted in Lowlands Rec, near to the bank’s Harrow branch.

This tree will give year-round colour as well as providing shade and a home for wildlife. It’s a tough variety that’s resilient to drought and pollution, making it an ideal choice for this park location.

It’s great to see businesses investing in their local community, and Arun is naturally proud of the contribution SBI is making to tree planting in the area.
