The UK’s community bank, Metro Bank, gives every colleague a Day to Amaze – essentially a paid day off to support a local charity or good cause. Colleagues from Metro Bank’s Brighton store decided to use their Day to Amaze to help clean the local beaches as part of the Million Mile Clean Up originally created by UK surfers.
Metro Bank colleagues Stephen Cotton, Jack Richardson, Jake Worrell, Alicia Curd, Ali Bain, Lester Ferguson and Robbie Chalmers collected bags of rubbish as part of the Million Mile Clean Up initiative which encourages volunteers to clean up Britain’s coastline and waterways. Every year the programme mobilises one million volunteers to clean over 10 million miles of UK landscape.
"We are local residents and were keen to use our Days to Amaze to help clear up the beaches,’’ explains Brighton Metro Bank Store Manager, Stephen Cotton. “I was more than happy to do my bit. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now and will certainly be taking part again soon.’’
Metro Bank’s Brighton store is located at 82 North Street, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 1ZA. The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 8:30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm.
