To support Lloyds bank’s charity of the year the Alzheimer’s Society, staff from the Grantham branch took part in a sponsored walk from their workplace to the bank’s base in Newark.
It was the final leg of a relay which saw Lloyds bank employees visit around 50 branches from Newmarket to Newark.
The sponsored walkers from Grantham raised £380 which was then doubled by the bank to £760, with early estimates that in total the relay raised over £6000.
Customer service manager Julie Cook said: “Fundraising is something as a bank we have been quite at the forefront of, and the Alzheimer’s Society is a cause close to my heart.”
Amongst the other charity walkers was cashier Helen McGurgan and Zoe Biggs who was involved in organising the fundraising.
Zoe said: “It’s definitely been challenging. We’ve had a range of weathers - lovely sunshine, torrential rain and thunderstorms, but it’s definitely worth it.”
