Thirty bank staff gave up a day of their time to help spruce up the offices of an upper Calder Valley anti-domestic violence charity.
The Lloyds Banking Group staff, who travelled from as far as London and Scotland to take part in the bank’s Day to Make a Difference employee volunteering programme, plastered, painted and shampooed the carpets of the White Ribbon Campaign’s headquarters in Mytholmroyd.
And White Ribbon volunteers hope the tidy new premises will lead to a surge of new recruits offering their time to tackle domestic violence.
Volunteer Joan Taylor said: “Lloyds Bank staff completely redecorated the building for us. It was a major makeover from the Make a Difference team!
“It was quite exciting having all those people in and it’s great to have the support from such a big organisation.
“The makeover might encourage more volunteers to come and work in a nicer environment.”
Martin Booth, change manager at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “We now dedicate ourselves to doing three days to make a difference and what that involves is looking for a local charity where we can make a difference. We chose White Ribbon because it’s local to Halifax and it’s important for us to support our local area.”
