Our staff raised the money through a series of fundraising events and initiatives including taking part in the London marathon, bake sales, a sponsored football match and the Pennies from Heaven scheme. The Bank then matched £25,000 of the money raised for each charity
The two charities also benefited from the success of our fourth charity banknote auction in October. A final share of the proceeds from the auction was also donated to Bliss, a charity nominated by Simon, and chosen by his colleagues in our Notes division. You can read about Simon’s story on the Bliss website.
The total amount fundraised by staff is higher than previous years and will have a lasting impact on The Lily Foundation and Myotubular Trust.
