Deutsche Bank employees raise over £450,000 for the Charities of the Year in a single day

Deutsche Bank employees have raised over £450,000 for the Deutsche Bank Charities of the Year as part of Corporate Citizenship UK’s “One Day” campaign. The amount raised breaks previous year’s fundraising revenues.

The event, which took place on 1 October, saw ex-England rugby star Victor Ubogu and Fame Academy mentor Kevin Adams let loose in Appold Street, to persuade employees to donate a day’s wage. 

Bollo, the gorilla from the TV series “The Mighty Boosh”, also put in an appearance, wreaking havoc over the tannoy, jumping on desks and scaring people, all to highlight the campaign.

The money raised will go directly to two charities: Afrikids and the Marine Conservation Society.

Kate Cavelle, head of Corporate Citizenship UK said: “We are thrilled to have raised such an impressive amount through the One Day campaign, breaking last year’s record of £365,000. Employees have shown a very strong commitment to our supported charities.”

The fundraising brings the total raised for this year’s Charities of the Year to GBP1.25 million.
