A St Albans bank has partnered with charity Home-Start Herts for a mad March fundraiser.
Metro Bank has pledged to raise £500 for the charity through ‘March Madness’, which will include a bike-a-thon, a 100-mile running challenge, a charity wax, the auctioning of a bespoke painting, and much more.
The £500 that Metro aims to raise will support a family for three months with intensive support from a trained and experienced volunteer family mentor.
Store manager Amber Dunlop said: “As a community bank, at Metro Bank we’re always looking for fun and innovative ways to fundraise that support local people.
"We really enjoyed being part of Home-Start Herts’ Great online flip off event on shrove Tuesday, and are looking forward to continuing to support the work that Home-Start does as the year goes on”
Suzy Moody, Home-Start Herts' strategic manager, added: "It’s great to be the chosen charity for this campaign. Metro pride themselves on being committed to the community, and each year support thousands of children to learn about money; our values are very much aligned.
