Staff of the Telephony Centre of the Royal Bank of Scotland in Birmingham have adopted The John Taylor Hospice as their main charity for the forthcoming year.
The staff of the Centre have a record of raising thousands of pounds and only last year, donated over £1,500 to the League of Friends of the Hospice.
This year, they have decided to concentrate all of their fund-raising and voluntary support on the Hospice in Erdington because of its local links.
The Telephony Centre employs over 250 staff at the bank's Headquarters in Brindley Place, Broad Street.
Already, over 30 staff have volunteered to take part in the Great Midlands Fun Run in Sutton Coldfield on June 1 and others will be at the hospice this month to help with gardens and other projects.
The volunteers came forward after a series of staff briefings were held at the bank's headquarters in Brindleyplace in Broad Street. Carol McNeil the Voluntary Services Manager based at the Hospice and Ray Woods from the League of Friends outlined the work of staff at the Hospice and how RBS employees could help.
