Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks
We have proudly worked in partnership with Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks since February 2008. We are pleased to announce our new public fundraising campaign - Bidding on Banknotes!
Bidding on Banknotes has already raised more than £50,000! Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far.
Following this incredible success, we are delighted to offer a last chance for banknote collectors to add some of the lowest number, pristine notes from the first run of the new Clydesdale Bank £10 polymer notes, to their collections.
How Bidding on Banknotes works:
At 9pm on Sunday 22 October, an Ebay auction went live. The auction will close at 9pm on Sunday 29 October. All profit will support Hospice UK's work in making sure that hospice care can reach everyone in need.
A FAQ list will be available on Ebay to answer your questions.
Read on to find out more about our partnership with Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks :
Our partnership has national reach through Hospice UK combined with regional engagement through local hospices. The Bank's branches and centres are twinned with 79 hospices across the UK. This local relationship is key to our partnership’s success because by volunteering and fundraising, colleagues can support hospices in the communities where their live and work.
The Banks’ employees have volunteered over 34,000 hours of support through activities such as assisting with hospice mailings, marshalling at events and helping with outdoor and gardening projects. This is important to our partnership as hospices rely heavily on volunteers, with over 125,000 people giving their time every year.
What Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks have to say about our partnership:
"Since launching our partnership on February 1, 2008 Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks employees have together helped to raise over £4.9m for Hospice care. It is a cause which is very close to the hearts of many of our employees and, as such, the partnership is about more than just funds raised. In the eight years since we began working together our employees have provided more than 34,000 volunteering hours for their local hospices. The enthusiasm and generosity shown by our employees is matched only by the gratitude expressed by the hospices we work with. It a pleasure to work with such an engaging and worthwhile cause."
