Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled gets a helping hand from NatWest managers

Wheelbarrows and brushes, rather than calculators and pens, were the order of the day for a team of local NatWest Private Banking Managers as they paid a visit to the Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled in Henbury, to give the team there a helping hand.

The NatWest team spent the day undertaking a range of groundwork and maintenance jobs, including weeding and digging over the bank around the outdoor arena, and sweeping, weeding and tidying up the border of a large tarmac car park.

Commenting on their experience, NatWest Private Investment Manager Andy Moon, who organised the event, said: "It was hard work but we had a great time and a lot of laughs along the way. 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 the Centre, which makes such a difference to the lives of so many, 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."

Nick Woodfield, Stable Manager at Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled, said: "The team did a great job - working hard to weed, clear, dig and sweep two large areas. We can all see the effort they put in and how much better the areas look. Avon Riding Centre would like to thank NatWest for giving the staff the time off work to help the Centre, and the NatWest Managers for everything that they did."
