YOU can bank on Lloyds staff being generous after helping raise £6,600 for three charities.

A team of colleagues from the banking group's Dunfermline contact centre came together to host a fundraising night recently which will see each charity receive £2,200.

Alzheimer's Scotland, Maggie's Fife and RNLI South Queensferry are all set to benefit as a result of the evening held at Hill of Beath Ex-Servicemen's Club on September 27.

Lisa Collum, one of the organisers, said: "We didn't expect to make anywhere near as much as we did.

"We decided to raise money for these charities as they're local in our communities and they've helped members of our team in the past with a family member or in another way.

"Lloyds have matched the £3,300 we raised on the night to double our total, and we're all absolutely delighted."

Her colleague, Carlyn Simpson, commented: "All of our team contributed something, whether that was helping source raffle prizes, selling tickets to the charity night or another great piece of help. It was a real team effort and we're already looking at plans for next year."

Tickets had cost £10 and 110 people were at the event, which had live music, raffle prizes and an auction.

Carlyn added: "I'd like to thank the businesses who helped us with raffle prizes and to compere Alec Parker, who was brilliant in getting people involved.

"It was a relaxed evening and there were great prizes and items for auction so we're really pleased with how it went."
