March and Wisbech use their heads to raise money for SportsAid's Liam!
Our branches have been having 'fun in the fens' and using their heads to raise smiles and cash from customers to support their SportsAid swimmer, Liam Knight. The branches have been supporting Liam since March and are hoping to raise £250 by the end of the year to help Liam with his training costs in addition to the £750 already donated at the beginning of the year.
Wisbech Building Society Manager and event organiser David Boyce says 'The idea came about when we were talking about swimming hats in the branch and all of a sudden, everyone was digging out all sorts of headwear with the idea that we could ask customers to sponsor us to wear them for a day or two.'
'Liam kindly came down to give us a hand rattling tins in Wisbech and yes, I did get to try his swimming cap!'
Charlie Green, Estate Agency Manager adds 'We have really enjoyed the buzz in and out of the office. I carried out my property valuations wearing my witches hat raising £12 plus a few giggles from unsuspecting vendors.'
The branch have raised around £100 so far. If you would like to donate, pop into either branch.
Liam, from Wisbech, is currently ranked in the UK's top ten for 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke and is aiming to make the Team GB squad for Rio.
