On Tuesday 26th November, Metro Bank’s store in Bath held a Christmas networking event for local businesses, in association with local charity Children’s Hospice South West.
The festive evening welcomed more than 30 local business people in the area, including Visit Bath, Savills and Monahans and many more.
Attendees enjoyed an evening of drinks, nibbles and networking and were able to hear from the event’s guest speaker, rugby legend, David Flatman.
David is an English sports pundit and former rugby union player who represented England eight times between 2000 and 2002.
He spoke about his experience commentating on the Rugby World Cup in Japan, and his successful career playing for the Saracens and Bath rugby clubs.
The networking evening was hosted by Metro Bank and local charity, Children’s Hospice South West.
The hospice has been caring for children with life-threatening conditions and providing professional family support services for more than 25 years.
Karen Mathie, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Children’s Hospice South West said: “It’s been a brilliant evening at the Metro Bank Bath store, seeing so many local business people raising money for the Hospice and getting in the Christmas spirit.
“Thank you to everyone who joined us and to Metro Bank for hosting this festive event.”
Yani Fernando, Local Business Manager at Metro Bank in Bath, added: “At Metro Bank we want our stores to give local people and businesses more than just a place to do their banking.
“We are a hub for the local community. We’re really proud to be supporting the Children’s Hospice and the amazing work they do.
“Thank you to all the local businesses who came along and to our outstanding guest speaker David Flatman.”
