NatWest staff undertake a Walk-A-Thon for Naomi House

It was track-suits and trainers rather than calculators and pens yesterday, as local NatWest staff took to the streets to raise money for Naomi House.

04 October 2011

Starting from the Bank's Hungerford branch, a team of fifteen walkers undertook a 10-mile sponsored walk, which saw them finishing up at the NatWest branch in Newbury. At the same time a second team of ten walked between NatWest's Abingdon and Wantage branches.

Whilst donations are still pouring in, spurred on by sponsorship from customers and colleagues alike, the team hope to have raised over £5,000 for the charity, which provides support to children and young adults in the area with life limiting conditions.

Commenting on the day, Graham Biggs, NatWest's local CEO for the area, who was one of the walkers involved, said: "We would like to say a big thank you to all our customers, colleagues, friends and family who have donated so generously. The work Naomi House does is invaluable and my team and I are just pleased that we can do our little bit to help them out, as part of NatWest's commitment to support the communities where we live and work."

Helen Jude, Corporate Fundraiser from Naomi House who sent the walkers on their way, said: "We are delighted that staff from NatWest are supporting Naomi House and jacksplace again this year. We rely on the generosity of our local community to provide crucial care for life-limited children and young adults free of charge."
