“As a community bank, how could we not get involved in this plainly bonkers event,” explains Bradford Metro Bank’s Store Manager Denis Charlette. “We are sponsoring the medals and winner’s cup for the most community minded local team as well as providing 200 goodies bags as a huge thank you for all participants, For the kids attending the event – look out for our friendly mascot Metro Man as he loves taking selfies.’’
