We would like to say a big thank you to Punita and all the staff and customers at Barclays who took part in their fundraiser and we look forward to working with them in the future.


At Barclays Coventry High street branch, we have been in contact with a few colleagues at Cyrenians as part of our working together programme. In the last few weeks we have been lucky enough to borrow a trolley from Sainsbury’s in order to display in the banking hall at Barclays for colleagues and customers to donate food for the Cyrenians Service Users.

Also, we have been able to hold an event in the banking hall and have raised £330 by selling handmade cards that the team had made. The team at Barclays gave up a hour after work to make some amazing cards that we sold for £1 each.  Alongside the sale of the cards we also had an instant raffle with small prizes.

The day itself was fun and customers were engaged.  Barclays will be looking at supporting Cyrenians Service Users by presenting some events that could help such as budgeting and life skills for CV writing.
