Metro Bank offers complimentary safe deposit boxes for all Team GB 2016 Olympic medallists

23rd August 2016

Metro Bank, the UK’s leading challenger bank, has today announced that it will be offering complimentary safe deposit boxes for all of Britain’s 2016 Olympic medallists.

The revolutionary high street bank, which is the only bank to offer safe deposit boxes across all its stores, is showing support for some of Britain’s leading sportsmen and women, by giving the winning athletes safe deposit boxes to store their medals securely - free of charge. 

Metro Bank stores - which are open seven days a week, early until late, 362 days a year - will put the minds of the triumphant Olympians at rest, with athletes able to take advantage of the bank’s extended opening hours to access their box, while secure in the knowledge that their medals are out of harm’s way.

“We are extremely proud of our incredible Team GB who have done us all proud at Rio this year, and I’d like to congratulate each of the participants,” commented Iain Kirkpatrick, Managing Director of Retail Banking at Metro Bank.

Kirkpatrick continued “It’s a hard-earned dream come true to compete at the Olympics, and to show our support we are offering complimentary safe deposit boxes to all medallists. We hope that the gift will serve as a reminder to all the winners just how proud Britain is of Team GB.” 

Metro Bank will be contacting each medallist individually on their return to the UK to offer the free safe deposit box.
