The Mayor of Hilling­don, coun­cil­lor Cather­ine Dann, was the first to cy­cle one mile as part of a spon­sored static bike chal­lenge sit­u­ated in the hall of Bar­clays, in High Street, Uxbridge, as part of a com­mu­nity day where lo­cal busi­nesses, the po­lice and the Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bureau had set up pop-up stands to en­ter­tain vis­i­tors.

The event, on Tues­day last week, fea­tured a raf­fle and a cake stall and was in aid of the Macmil­lan Can­cer Re­search ap­peal.

Event or­gan­iser Rupin­der Dhaddey, from Bar­clays, said: “It was amaz­ing how much we had man­aged to pack into the day and the won­der­ful re­sponse from cus­tomers and vis­i­tors to the branch.

“I am de­lighted that we will be able to present to

Macmil­lan £2,000, which in­cludes match­ing from Bar­clays.”

Col­leagues else­where in the business held a cof­fee morn­ing on Fri­day and Satur­day, which was sim­i­larly at­tended by the mayor on the sec­ond day.

Hot drinks were sipped and cakes munched at the Bar­clays branch in Sta­tion Road, Hayes.

Com­mu­nity banker Deepal Dmello, who or­gan­ised the day, along with her man­ager Granville Bavey­stock, said: “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to our cus­tomers who sup­ported our fundrais­ing and al­lowed us to hand over £2,000 – in­clud­ing Bar­clays match­ing – to Macmil­lan.”
