Over the course of the year, our staff raised money for a variety of worthy causes. In May the bank held a Bake Off for The Connection. In July the Bank fielded a 10-person team in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge, raising money for Age UK. In September the Bank took part in Genes for Genes day, and in December staff organised a Christmas jumper day fundraiser for Save the Children.
Over the course of the year staff have done voluntary work at The Connection and Roots and Shoots, a South London charity that helps inner city children by training them in horticulture. Members of staff have also taken part in education and training non governmental organisation ORT’s mentoring scheme, JUMP. The charity introduces Year 12 students at schools in the London Borough of Camden to mentors who are established in their careers.
