A team of 12 colleagues from Natwest and RBS joined forces to work together to support Peace Hospice Care.

Having already challenged himself to the Firewalk, raising more than £350, Phil Harrington of Natwest used his connections and joined forces with the Royal Bank of Scotland for a brilliant day out of the office for the benefit of Peace Hospice Care.

On 16th June, Phil and a team of 11 colleagues got stuck in with painting, helping with marketing as well as creating purple bunting for the Hospice's first ever Summer Fete on Sunday 28th June.

Corrine Thurley, of the Royal Bank of Scotland, said "We spent an incredibly rewarding day at Peace Hospice Care as part of our community programme. It was very uplifting to meet so many kind hearted, spirited and caring people. It was humbling to work alongside the amazing staff and volunteers who were so thankful for our time and contribution. We especially appreciated the tour of the Hospice which really put into perspective the work and challenges the Hospice faces. Thank you for making us feel so welcome."

The group committed a whole day to the Hospice in Watofrd, and even brought all the tools needed. "We are so grateful that we got to spend a day with such a fantastic and willing group!" said Hospice Corporate Fundraising Manager, Vicky Luk. "We have found that corporate volunteering days are becoming more popular, and we hope that the teams who have been helping us found out more about what we do and have seen the value of their wonderful contributions."
