On Sunday 3rd November the Cirencester and Stroud branches of Santander raised £1,400 for Cotswold Care Hospice. The money was raised with a sponsored walk where the Cirencester branch walked to Stroud and the Stroud team walked to Cirencester. With the weather improving from the downpour of Saturday, the brave Cirencester team got to Merrywalks Stroud after 14 miles on foot with a smile on their faces after a job well done!

Tim Morris Branch Manager at Cirencester said “It´s great to support Cotswold Care Hospice, a local charity that does so much to support its patients, their families and carers and hopefully this walk will help raise awareness.” 

Operating 7 days a week 365 days a year, Cotswold Care Hospice requires around £2.8million to run in 2013.
