NatWest managers 'give something back' to Prospect Hospice

Hammers and saws, rather than calculators and pens, were the order of the day for NatWest's local Private Banking team as they paid a visit to Prospect Hospice in Wroughton.

As part of the bank's 'Give Something Back' community initiative, a team of twelve spent the day giving the gardens at the hospice a makeover - mending and building fences and planters, as well as helping the hospice admin team with some paperwork.

Commenting on their experience, NatWest Private Banking Manager, James Palser, said: "It's very important to us as a team that we are part of, and contribute fully to, the local community in which we all live and work. As a result being able to do something like this for Prospect Hospice, which offers such an invaluable service to so many people, in addition to all the work we do to assist local clients, was fantastic, and we have all taken away a great feeling of achievement."

Yvonne Hanley, Head of HR at Prospect Hospice said: "We were delighted that the team from NatWest came to Prospect Hospice today to bring their skills to our gardens. Volunteering and the support of local organisations make a real difference to the experience of the people we care for here, and our gardens are greatly appreciated by the patients and families who come to the Hospice. We are very grateful to the team from NatWest for supporting our work in this way."
