Staff at Bristol & West have raised £38,000 for Cancer and Leukemia In Children to mark the 150th anniversary of the bank.
The money was raised through a six-week competition called Click for CLIC, in which staff won prizes for the most original photograph, fund-raising idea or most money raised.
The best photograph prize was won by the compliance, legal and secretariat department for a shot of wet sponges and buckets of water being thrown at chief executive Jeff Warren.
Most original fund-raising was won by the savings and investments decision support department who bought pythons, cockroaches and tarantulas into B&W's head office from Bristol Zoo.
The prize for most money raised went to the purchasing department which raked in £7,000 by auctioning off donations from B&W suppliers, including a balloon flight, a trip to Dublin and a chauffeur for the day.
Chief executive Jeff Warren says: “The executive and I were delighted that our staff chose to raise funds for Clic as a way of celebrating our 150th anniversary. Clic is one of the charities B&W supports and I would like to thank everyone for their team spirit, which made it such a success.”
Clic chief executive Andrew Larpent says: “The cost of providing care for sick children is increasing all the time, so our partnership with B&W could not have come at a better time.”
