CATCH today’s video where the Leader dropped into Louth HSBC’s branch where staff members and their families have set up a charity fundraising day in branch.
With a tombola, raffle and cake stall being presented throughout the day, employees alongside family members and friends have also been using their pedal power to cycle at least 100 miles between them all and are being sponsored to do so.
All funds raised from the day will go towards Cancer Research UK and the Macmillan Suite at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.
The day has been set up from the inspiration of former local employee, Mike Corden who has been diagnosed with Terminal Pancreatic Cancer and employees alongside, family, friends and former employees wanted Mike to see the fundraising activities they wanted to do in order to raise funds for charity.
Watch Mike’s son, Tom Corden as he takes on his stint on the bike which was kindly lent to the branch by the Meridian Leisure Centre.
Also spare ten minutes to sign a petition which will help towards the discussion of Pancreatic Cancer in Parliament as currently this particular type of cancer is the UK’s 5th biggest cancer killer and yet only receives one per cent of overall research funding.
