They were there to receive a cheque for just over £2000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind. The money was raised by the NatWest team at a recent music night at The Meridian Centre held in aid of the charity. Over 180 people were treated to an evening starring local bands -The Wayfarers, Marilyn and Andy, John Cave and Remnant.
Yvonne White, Manager of NatWest's Peacehaven branch, said: "I'm delighted to be handing over this money to Guide Dogs for the Blind who provide such a fantastic and valuable service. It's very important to my team and I that we play an active role in the community in which we all live and work. The Music Night gave us a wonderful opportunity to do this whilst having some fun at the same time. We can't say a big enough ‘thank you' to all those who came along and donated so generously."
Mick Etheridge continued: "I am very pleased to except this cheque on behalf of our branch. A lot of hard work was put into making this music night such a success and it was all done voluntarily. I am sure that everyone watching had a great time; I still get people telling me so. I am a guide dog owner myself and if it wasn't for donations like these Guide Dogs UK would not be able to support us. We rely on our dogs for our mobility and independence."
