Bankers in charity cycle ride

Lloyds staff to raise funds for mental health support.

A team of interns at Lloyds in Birmingham will take on the challenge of a 45 mile cycling adventure as part of their effort to raise vital funds for Lloyds Banking Group’s new charity partner Mental Health UK.

Lloyds Banking Group aims to raise over £2 million per year for Mental Health UK to provide much needed support to the millions of people who are struggling with both their mental health and financial well-being. The team of intrepid yet largely inexperienced riders will raise funds for Mental Health UK by taking part in the Worcestershire Beacon of Hope cycle challenge – a 45 mile long journey from Birmingham to the Worcestershire Beacon, on Saturday 12th August.

Jose Miguel Maldonado, a 20 year old intern said: “I decided to take part in this challenge for Mental Health UK because I am aware of the growing problem of poor mental health and the impact it is having on people’s lives. It’s great to know that every mile I cycle will make a difference to our local community and Help Britain Prosper.”
