ZURICH Community Trust has raised more than £2,500 for the NSPCC after Going Green for the charity.

Last month the team at Zurich in Swindon held a number of fundraising events to raise the cash for the children’s charity, and earlier this week a total of £2,530 was counted up.

Kate Hopkins, head of retail governance at Zurich, said: “We encouraged as many people as possible to wear green for Go Green Day itself but we also held quite a lot of other fundraising events to help raise the money.

“We had a cake sale, a raffle, a guess how many green balloons there are in the meeting pod competition, a tuck shop, and a predict the football score competition.

“Last year we raised £1,760 and we wanted to better it this year so we had a target we wanted to beat.

“When we hit the £2,000 we just went for one final push.

“I think we have got quite a long standing relationship with the NSPCC and we try to support them when we can.”

Elaine Quinn, NSPCC Swindon and North Wiltshire branch chairman, said the money raised would go to supporting the NSPCC centre in Swindon.

She said: “Kate and the team have been absolutely incredible with all the work they have done to raise the money.”
