How the partnership works:
Our partnership has national reach through Hospice UK combined with regional engagement through local hospices. The Bank has 275 branches and 42 Business & Private Banking Centres who are twinned with over 80 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.
What we have achieved:
Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks are Platinum award winners for payroll giving, with over £319,000 raised since the start of our partnership.
Our partnership was shortlisted for a Charity Time Awards in 2015 in the ‘Corporate National Partnership of the Year with a Financial Institution’ category.
Over 150 colleagues participated in the 26 mile Hadrian's Hike in September 2015, raising more than £155,000 for Hospice UK.
More than 70 colleagues took on the Trek the Ben challenge in September 2014. They climbed over 1,300 meters and raised over £120,000 for Hospice UK!
In September 2013, 29 colleagues took part in a Coast to Coast cycle challenge, which was started by Olympic gold medalist Steve Cram and raised over £57,000 for Hospice UK!
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."
