The UK’s best 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 Cardiff store chose to use their Days to Amaze as volunteers at the Ronald McDonald house at Cardiff's Heath Hospital.
Metro Bank colleagues Jess Morpeth, Alicia Malfatti and James Strange spent their day transforming the grounds and playground around the house. Ronald McDonald House Charities UK ease some of the burden on families with children in hospital by providing free home away from home accommodation. Metro Bank also donated 25 bags of toiletries – (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and exfoliator) for each of the families using the home.
“It was a pleasure to spend time being able to help out and listen to the amazing work they have achieved explained Metro Bank customer service representative Alicia Malfatti. “I cannot wait for more days there to help.
“As a community bank, we love using our Days to Amaze to support local good causes,” explains Cardiff Metro Bank’s assistant store manager Jess Morpeth. “I absolutely love helping out in the community as you learn so much about what’s going on your doorstep! I thoroughly enjoyed the day and it was very rewarding to see the before and after transformation of the grounds.”
Metro Bank’s Cardiff store can be found at 507 Newport Road, Cardiff, CF23 9AD. The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 08:30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm.
