Leeds team raises £1,900 for charities      

17 colleagues from Leeds Building Society raised £1,905 for charity by completing a 27 mile walk around Kielder Reservoir.

Kielder Water is a large man-made reservoir in Northumberland in North East England. It is the largest artificial lake in the United Kingdom by capacity of water.

The team from direct mortgages and head office shared the funds between Mind and MacMillan, charities chosen by colleagues.

In addition to sponsorship of the walk, further funds were raised through car washing and bake sales.

“Both physically and mentally challenging, the walk raised awareness of and money for Mind and Macmillan with proceeds being split equally between the two,” said John Clow, direct mortgages manager.

“With so many lives impacted by mental illness and cancer the team is delighted to have raised £1,905 for these two great causes.

“We’d like to thank everyone who sponsored us and our colleagues for raising additional funds.”
