She was there with her mum and dad, Caterina and Adrian, to collect the special edition Breast Cancer Awareness Barbie Doll she won in a competition run by the branch as part of a 'pink week' of fundraising to raise money for, and awareness of, Breast Cancer Research. Entrants were asked to name the doll famous for her love of all things pink, with Nikkita's suggestion - Nikkita! - chosen as the winner. The branch staff, who include cancer survivor Hilli Camacho, loved the name as it reminded them of a former colleague - another Nikkita - who loves pink and was known as the Barbie Princess!

Sue Rice, Deputy Manager at NatWest's Canterbury branch, who organised the fundraising activities said: "We've all been affected by cancer in one way or another and like everyone we just wanted to do our bit to help. Our aim was to raise awareness and as much money as possible through our 'pink week' whilst having some fun with our customers. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and donated so generously. It's been great to see Nikkita here today and we're all so pleased that we have found such a special home for this Barbie."

The fundraising efforts of the branch are not stopping there. They will also be taking part in Children in Need on Friday 18 November dressing up in black tie and posh frocks to hold their very own version of Strictly Come Dancing in the branch, dancing throughout the day with their customers.
