In 2011 Royal Bank of Scotland became proud supporters of the STV Children’s Appeal and to date have now raised over of £989,281.
Over the years, Royal Bank of Scotland staff have taken part in various fundraising activities including: the annual Pedal for Scotland cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh, some have walked all the way from Glasgow to Loch Lomond as part of the Kiltwalk and others hosted their own 'Big Fat Scottish Quiz' evening.
Last year in 2017, Royal Bank of Scotland staff really showed what they were made of. Alongside STV staff, a group of Royal Bank of Scotland staff cycled 500 miles from Ayr to Inverness to raise money for STV Appeal.
Malcolm Buchanan, Chair of Royal Bank of Scotland’s board in Scotland said “Royal Bank of Scotland is a proud supporter of the STV Children’s Appeal. Its impact and the positive difference it makes to children and young people across Scotland can be seen throughout the towns and communities in which our colleagues live and work, helping improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our society. We have raised over £900,000 for the charity, and this year, through events such as the Kiltwalk and Pedal for Scotland, we intend to raise even more for this worthwhile cause.”
The STV Children’s Appeal is delighted to have the continued support of the Royal Bank of Scotland in 2018 and staff fundraising plans are already underway.
Chairman of STV, Baroness Margaret Ford, said: “RBS has been a long-term supporter of the STV Children’s Appeal and has raised over £900,000 – a phenomenal amount of money - for children and young people in Scotland affected by poverty. We greatly appreciate their ongoing support and generosity for such an important cause, and look forward to working with them in the year ahead to improve the lives of even more Scottish children.”
