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!
This auction gives the public an opportunity to collect their very own pristine, uncirculated new £10 Clydesdale Bank polymer banknote from the first print run. The first phase of the auction will feature 6 pristine notes numbered: 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. These highly collectible, low numbered notes, will be auctioned alongside serial 250159, a must have for proud Scots and Rabbie Burns fans alike.
How Bidding on Banknotes works:
At 9pm on Sunday 24th September, an Ebay auction will go live. The auction will close at 9pm on Sunday 1st October. All money raised, above the face-value of £10, will support Hospice UK's work in making sure that hospice care can reach everyone in need.
A second auction, in October, will allow the public to bid on further, low serial numbered banknotes. 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."
Jacqui Atkinson, Community Affairs Manager Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks
