Bank’s charity boost

GENEROUS staff at Barclays bank in Pontefract raised more than £400 for a hospital charity which supports bereaved families.

Staff at the Market Place branch donated £434 to Wakefield’s Pinderfields Hospital’s baby bereavement charity after holding tombolas and a treasure hunt for customers during Easter week. The events raised £217 which was matched by Barclays as part of the bank’s Charity Begins at Work programme.

Jessica Roberts, branch manager said: “We chose to donate to this charity because it is very close to the heart of a member of our team whose relative lost her baby daughter.”
