STAFF at NatWest’s central branch in Commercial Road held a week of fundraising activities for the British Red Cross.
The city centre bank gave its support to the national charity to celebrate the anniversary of its founder with a birthday cake and lots of smaller ones for customers.
Staff baked cakes to help raise money for the charity.
First aid demonstrations were also given to customers to help raise awareness and get people interested in what the charity does.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement started in 1863, inspired by a Swiss businessman, Henri Dunant. He had been appalled at the suffering of thousands of men on both sides in the fight for Italian independence left to die due to lack of care.
