Ulster Bank staff out to raise €300k for charity

Staff at Ulster Bank are planning to raise €300,000 for charity during one week in June. Running from June 8-14, the focus of the 2015 One Week in June campaign will be to encourage all Ulster Bank staff to walk, run or cycle five kilometres.

Bank staff are also being encouraged to 'Run with a Customer' at three informal 'meet and run' events planned as part of the healthy activities on Saturday, June 13. The charities to benefit are Barnardos, the Simon Community, the Irish Cancer Society, Depaul Ireland, Laura Lynn Children's Hospice, Barretstown, The Irish Hospice Foundation, Marie Curie, Depaul Northern Ireland, CLIC Sargent, Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children, Barnardos NI, Simon Community NI and Northern Ireland Hospice.

Pictured at the launch were: Alan Quinlan, Kevin Keegan (Ulster Bank), Hannah Nolan and Olympian Catherina McKiernan.
