In November 2016, we were delighted to be chosen by Lloyds Bank Commercial, Client Services London, Threadneedle Street, as its charity of choice for its Christmas fundraising efforts.
As part of this, the Client Services, London team held a Christmas raffle, which ran from 1st – 24th December, with prizes donated from Managers, Directors and colleagues from across the organisation. Some of the amazing prizes that were donated included Bollinger’s Champagne and Gucci aftershave. The incredible fundraising efforts contributed to a total of £560 raised, which in turn was match-funded by Lloyds Bank Commercial Charities and Foundation Team, making a grand total of £1120!
The funds raised are being given to the Great Holm Coffee Shop in Milton Keynes. The funds will be used to buy new tops for the people supported by MacIntyre that work in the Coffee Shop and the catering staff, as well as a new trolley for the Tea Room. The money will also be put towards a safe hob that will be situated towards the front of the shop; all of which will greatly assist with the Lifelong Learning Programme in Milton Keynes.
Hina Patel, Assistant Relationship Manager, Lloyds Bank Commercial, Client Services London, Threadneedle Street, commented:
“It was a pleasure to raise money for MacIntyre. The charity is close to the hearts of many colleagues and as a few had also visited the Coffee Shop before it was an easy decision to make. The raffle wouldn’t have been so successful without the amazing prizes that were donated, so we also have a lot of people to thank! We can’t wait to visit the Coffee Shop to see how the fundraising has helped.”
Adding to this, MacIntyre’s Events and Corporate Fundraiser, Jessie Harrison says:
“We’re hugely thankful to Lloyds Bank Commercial, Client Services London, Threadneedle Street, for not only choosing MacIntyre, but for the tremendous efforts and funds that were raised as a result, and of course to Lloyds Bank Commercial Charities and Foundation Team for match-funding the money raised. The team at Great Holm Coffee Shop were overwhelmed with the donation, which will certainly make a huge difference.”
