Bowled over by RBS giving

Fundraising

A charity cricket match organised by Royal Bank of Scotland staff in Southend helped raise more than £2,000 towards Southend Hospital's Bosom Pals Appeal On The Road.

The fundraiser was the latest event in a long line of support from various branches of the bank, which over past eight years has donated around £70,000 to the hospital.

The latest donation was raised via a number of initiatives, including dress down days, payroll giving, table sales collections and raffles.

The Appeal was launched last October to ensure women in southEssexget the same access to digital mammography as women screened at the hospital's breast unit.

Community fundraising manager Kayley Harvey said: "Support like this is just amazing and we are very grateful to RBS."

"Thanks to all the people who took part and to the Old Southendians and Southchurch Cricket Club which allowed us the pitch free of charge," says organiser Mick Davey from RBS. "We had a great day."
