TSB Ellon will be hosting a ‘Hike it or Bike it’ fundraiser next week to celebrate its new Local Charity Partnership with Galaxy Group.
The bank, located at 36 Bridge St, has partnered with the charity which provides support for families and young people with additional needs, and is hosting two fundraising events this month to kick-start the partnership.
The first event will take place on Friday, September 16, when TSB Partners will participate in a sponsored cycle – with a difference!
Excell Sports have kindly donated an exercise bike for the day which will be placed in the branch from 10am to 4pm.
TSB Partners will take part in the sponsored cycle on a relay basis – hoping to raise over £100 for Galaxy Group.
Refreshments throughout the day will be donated by Ythan Bakery.
The second event will be running for the whole of September and is a ‘guess the sweeties in the jar’ competition.
For £1, customers can try and guess the number of sweets in the jar, which have been generously supplied from The Coffee Pot in Ellon.
The customer who guesses closest will win the entire sweet collection, with all proceeds going to the Galaxy Group.
Bank manager, Gary Wade, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Galaxy Group as our Local Charity Partner for 2016/17.
“They do a great job in supporting young people with additional support needs in central Aberdeenshire.”
