Fundraising success at the bank
PUBLISHED: 11:00 06 June 2015
A FUNDRAISING event for Weston Hospicecare was held at Lloyds Bank in Weston High Street.
The bank has a large space in its foyer and on Friday volunteers from the hospice filled it with delicious cakes and treats.
Pam Wells, who worked as a customer service advisor at the bank for 36 years, organised the event in aid of the charity.
She said: “This time last year I was at the hospice because I wasn’t very well. They were so helpful to me and I wanted to do something for them in return.
“The day was fantastic.
“We had a lot of cakes for sale too.
“We had a wonderful response from the local community. We had 42 prizes donated from local businesses.”
The event raised £638.65 which will be doubled by Lloyds Bank.
The bank is now hoping more local charities will come forward and hold fundraising sessions in the space.
