RBS Running Challenge

RBS is organising running events that give employees the opportunity to raise money for Sport Relief. The events, taking place in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh, will run between Tuesday 8 March and Thursday 17 March.

RBS will donate up to £200,000 by matching the first £100 of sponsorship raised by up to 2000 employees.

 

Helping customer donations

Between 19 February 2016 and 31 March 2016, for every Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest or Ulster Bank customer that downloads and activates the mobile banking app, RBS will donate £2 to Sport Relief. This applies to the first 100,000 activations of the app meaning RBS will donate up to £200,000 in total.

In the lead up to the Sport Relief weekend, which takes place Friday 18th to Sunday 20th March, customers will be able to donate to Sport Relief using a number of banking channels including online and over the counter in branches.

 

Big Bake Off for Sport Relief

There's more than one way to work up a sweat to raise money for Sport Relief. RBS is encouraging employees to turn up the oven, stick on an apron and take part in the Big Bake Off for Sport Relief between Monday 29 February and Friday 4 March.

RBS will also be hosting special live Showstopper Challenge events in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London for employees who want to take the Baking Challenge to the next level.

 

The Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games

RBS is encouraging employees to sign up to the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games. The Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games are nationwide, from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th March. Participants can walk, run, swim or cycle themselves proud at over 1,000 locations across the UK, including Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. For every £1 RBS employees raise, RBS will match up to £100 per Games participant to a maximum amount of £50,000.
