Prac­ti­cal steps to help

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Bank staff from Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang raised £529 for Project 31 by ditch­ing their nor­mal mode of trans­port and choos­ing to walk to work.

TSB man­ager Kay Cairns and em­ploy­ees Greg Simp­son, Kirsty New­bury and Con­nor Gray walked over 20 miles to help Project 31 pro­vide in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties for fam­i­lies and chil­dren in the Ruther­glen area.

Hike it or Bike it was started by the bank’s branch team in Scot­land in 2013 and they raised more than £40,000 for char­ity from this ini­tia­tive alone.

In 2014 the com­pany made it an an­nual TSB-wide fundraiser.

Kay Cairns said: “By leav­ing their cars at home and shun­ning public trans­port, our team has worked hard to make this a suc­cess.

“I’d re­ally like to thank all of our part­ners who took part and ev­ery­one who has sup­ported them.

“We have re­ally en­joyed get­ting out­doors and ditch­ing our nor­mal com­mute into work and it is fan­tas­tic to know that our ef­forts will help such a great cause.”

In 2015 TSB staff raised over £ 567,000 for nearly 500 char­i­ties and causes through their fundrais­ing and vol­un­teer­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.
