Barclays employees from across the London and the Home Counties have been taking part in fundraising to support Missing People. The ‘3 – 4– 5 Challenge’ took place from 18-22 June and was inspired by three Barclays employees undertaking Missing People’s annual Cycle Challenge.
Peter O’Shea, Arty Cameron and Johnathan Washbourne cycled amazing gruelling 500 miles in 5 days, raising funds for the charity with every turn of the pedals. To support the intrepid team through this immense physical challenge, 260 branches took part in various fundraising activities throughout the week.
Barclays branches went out of their way to help support vulnerable missing children and their families. Teams raised money and awareness with static cycle challenges, sponsored walks and runs, cake sales, car washes, food stalls, even climbing the heights of the O2!!
Collectively, Barclays London and the Home Counties raised £42.284 for Missing People. This money will help us support the 140,000 children who go missing every year in the UK.
Ross Miller, Director of Fundraising at Missing People said:
“We are extremely grateful to have the continued support of Barclays London and the Home Counties. The awareness and the funds they have helped raise this summer is phenomenal and we could not continue to be a lifeline for missing people and their families without companies like Barclays.”
Peter O’Shea at Barclays said:
“We are delighted with the amount raised for Missing People and would like to thank everyone who supported us to make this happen”
