Bank staff’s 24-hour cyclathon to help swell Pudsey coffers
Staff from Bank of Scotland branches in Rutherglen are getting on their bikes to help raise cash for BBC Children in Need.
From 11am on Thursday, October 8 through until 10.59 on Friday the staff will join colleagues from across Glasgow to help the bank raise over £300,000 nationally for Pudsey.
Andrew Thomson, Pedal for Pudsey Captain in Rutherglen, said:“Bank of Scotland colleagues in Glasgow have always been huge supporters of the Charity of the Year raising large amounts of money for good causes by taking on incredible challenges .
“We’re proud that our principal partnership with BBC Children in Need will help make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children throughout the UK.“
It is expected that staff across the country will cycle the equivalent of more than twice around the world in just twentyfour hours on static bikes.
Lloyds Banking Group aim to raise at least £2million per year for their Charity of the Year in 2015 and 2016. This is in addition to the fundraising achieved through the bank’s exclusive schools fundraising partnership with BBC Children in Need and their role as the charity’s first ever Principal Partner.
Pedal for Pudsey aims to raise funds to ensure that children and young people in the UK can have a safe, happy and secure childhood and have the opportunity to reach their potential.
Members of the public are invited to pop into the branch during normal opening hours to cheer on participants or make a donation.
