Wolverhampton Workers Walk for Women’s Aid

11th May 2021

Wolverhampton Metro Bank Colleagues walk for charity

Metro Bank colleagues from the Wolverhampton store have strapped on their walking boots to fund raise £619 for Women’s Aid.

The Metro Bank team comprised local director Lakh Singh and store manager Stuart Williams with Aman Dhillon, Rosie Milton, Simran Kaur, Jaz Govindan, Yaz Raja, Jesse Hameed, Stuart Williams and Kiran Boghan and Chloe Westley – all of whom have been in training for this challenge which saw them walk from their store in Dudley Street to the Birmingham Metro Bank store on the High Street – a total of 17.7 miles.

Women’s Aid is a grassroots federation working together to provide life-saving services in England and build a future where domestic abuse is not tolerated and women and children are safe.

 “As a community bank, we’re always looking for ways to raise money for charity,” said Stuart Williams, store manager of Metro Bank Wolverhampton. “The team walked through what felt like all of the seasons combined into one – rain, hail, wind and sun for over five hours.  We all powered through despite the aches, pains and blisters to achieve this goal as a team! I couldn’t think of a more fantastic way to show our support to such a deserving charity!”

Metro Bank’s Wolverhampton store is located at 6-7 Dudley Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 3EY.  Currently the store is open Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm.
