FLAG receive £7,500 from Grimsby banking team

The team at NatWest Business and Commercial banking in Grimsby, together with their branch based colleagues have adopted FLAG as their charity, and have held a number of events in support of them. These have included an evening with Simon Weston attended by 250 people.

Dave Topliss, Relationship Manager at the NatWest Business team in Grimsby, said: "FLAG is a very important local charity and last year we raised more than £1,300 for them, but we knew we could do even better! With this in mind we organised a number of events including quizzes, raffles and the audience with Simon Weston. We have been overwhelmed by people's generosity and are delighted to have raised an additional £6,200 and to be presenting FLAG's fundraisers with a cheque for the total of £7,500 today. The charity means so much to my colleagues and I, and we are going to continue to support them."

FLAG aims to provide recreational activities for children from age 4 years to 21+ who have a range of disabilities and special needs. Their aim is to enrich the lives of the children by providing recreational activities, developing social and independence skills and empowering them to play a rightful place in the community. It is FLAG's aim to provide them with a safe and supported environment where they can meet and play with their friends.
