STAFF at the Motherwell branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland took part in a local fundraising drive for the Dalziel Day Centre.

They joined colleagues at other Lanarkshire branches to create special bunting, with each bank creating a star to be added to the chain.

The unique challenge required each of the branches to provide transport ‘representative of their local area’ for their star, with Motherwell FC stepping in to offer the bank use of its minibus.

RBS’s Motherwell-based sales service expert Robert McCosh, assisted by business manager David McAuley, also boosted the funds by walking between several local branches.

He set off from Wishaw, with the seven-hour route then including Cleland, Bellshill, Tannochside, Blantyre, Hamilton and Motherwell.

The Motherwell branch raised over £600, while the total for the Lanarkshire area was around £1,500. Staff at the various branches involved would like to thank their customers and everyone who supported their efforts and made donations.

A spokesperson for the Dalziel Day Centre said: “This is a fantastic sum of money and we can’t thank the staff at the Motherwell branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland enough for their efforts.

“The staff here are delighted with this donation and I’m sure the users will be as well.

“We would also like to thank our local football team, Motherwell FC, for getting involved.

“It’s always nice for everyone associated with the centre when we receive community support in this way.”
