The local branch of NatWestBank is setting a target of £10,000 that would be allocated to five chosen charities selected by employees of the institution.

Three events, including a drinks reception, a quiz and the increasingly popular bubble football, aim to entice companies and teams of individuals who are interested to take part.

“For one week in October it’s all hands to the pump and we’re really going for it with the goal being to raise as much money as possible, but also have a lot of fun in the process,” a spokesman for the company said. “With this in mind we’ve arranged a number of fantastic events.We write to you today to highlight our endeavours, seek your support (raffle prize donations are very welcome) and to extend invites to you and your colleagues to a number of our events.”

An evening of drinks and canapés on Tuesday 4 October to meet representatives from some of the chosen local charities will have a ‘fantastic’ raffle on the night that would go towards the charities.

The Charity Quiz will take place at the Manchester United Football Club on Wednesday 5 October and each team should consist of four members and will cost £100 to register. Those interested will be welcomed to the club with tapas and a bottle of wine on every table.

The first NatWest Bubble Football Tournament will be held at Europa Point on Sunday 9 October and teams will consist of five players with a minimum of two of the five players being female. Each team will cost £150 to register more information on the game can be found on bubblefootball-gib.com.

The chosen charities are: St John’s Ambulance, Cancer Relief Gibraltar, Calpe House, Babysteps Gibraltar and A Pathway Through Pain. “We will donate everything that we raise equally to these local charities,” the spokesman said.
