A Luton bank customer manager has pledged to raise £7,000 for Girlguiding UK to provide local girls with an opportunity to travel overseas to India and the USA this summer.

Clare Wilmot of Lloyds Bank said: “I decided to make this pledge because Girlguiding UK is something I have been involved in for many years.

“It’s great to know that the money raised will make a positive change to enable girls to travel abroad to represent Girlguilding Anglia.”

Her charity cash will go to Stopsley South District, the Bedfordshire arm of the movement.

Clare has joined 6,000 colleagues across the bank who have vowed to support their own communities and to facilitate the bank’s commitment to make 2015 its biggest year ever.

Her fundraising activities include bag-packing at local supermarkets and organising a mega district sleepover for 100.

Lloyds director Graham Lindsay said: “It’s great to see Clare make this pledge to raise money and to help us deliver our biggest ever year of community support to mark the significant milestone of our 260th anniversary.”
