Lloyds TSB Foundation game, set and MATCH over £5,500 for Action Cancer

 

Local cancer charity, Action Cancer, has benefited from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland’s Matched Giving Scheme to the tune of just over £5,500.

Around 20 Lloyds Banking Group colleagues have contributed to this outstanding amount over the last year by taking part in a variety of activities in support of Action Cancer, including sponsored facial hair growing, cake sales and participation in their annual MoonLight Walk in June, which raises money for the charity’s breast screening service. The £5,500 raised will enable Action Cancer to screen almost 40 women province wide either at its Belfast base or on board the Big Bus which travels to over 200 locations every year bringing services to deprived areas and areas where uptake of services is low. 

The Matched Giving Scheme encourages involvement in the voluntary sector through personal participation in fundraising or volunteering. Every member of staff employed by Lloyds Banking Group and any subsidiary is entitled to claim matched funding from the Foundation for every pound raised or every hour volunteered.

Kerry Anderson, Corporate Fundraising Officer for Action Cancer says “We are delighted with the contribution that has been made by the staff of Lloyds Banking Group and the Lloyds TSB Foundation’s Matched Giving initiative and would like to offer a huge thank you to all staff who took part in fundraising activities to raise money for Action Cancer”

Sandara Kelso-Robb, Executive Director of the Lloyds TSB Foundation added “Matched Giving enables the Foundation to acknowledge the work of staff throughout Lloyds Banking Group in Northern Ireland in their fundraising & volunteering endeavours. I’m delighted that Action Cancer has been one of many local charities that have been able to benefit from this initiative”.

Jim McCooe, Lloyds Banking Group Ambassador for Northern Ireland says "I am delighted colleagues took advantage of the Matched Giving Scheme operated by the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland.  It is great to see their efforts being recognised in this way.  This is one of the many community projects supported within Lloyds Banking Group in Northern Ireland."
