Metro Bank’s Wolverhampton store is donating £300 and challenging new students joining the University of Wolverhampton to transform a tenner into something of greater value for a local charity.
This new challenge devised by the Institute of Directors and the University of Wolverhampton Business School is part of the new students’ welcome week (from September 25th – 28th).
Wolverhampton Metro Bank Local Business Manager, Kiran Boghan – who is also a guest lecturer at the Wolverhampton Business School - commented: “As a community bank, this is a brilliantly devised challenge to be involved in.”
Up to 250 new students will join the business school in September and Metro Bank will give each group £10 to fund their entrepreneurial challenge to raise as much money as possible for Wolverhampon charity, The Good Shepherd.
The Good Shepherd has a long history of supporting the most disadvantaged people in Wolverhampton and its mission is to end homelessness, support recovery, and create pathways out of poverty. The charity provides crisis support including food, practical support, and interventions including help with mental health and addiction
Boghan: “We are excited to see how the students meet and master this challenge. All the monies raised by the students at the end of the challenge will be donated to The Good Shepherd including the original seed money supplied by Metro Bank.”
Metro Bank’s Wolverhampton store is located at 6-7 Dudley St, Wolverhampton WV1 3EY. The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 08:30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm.
