Charity Initiative

Each year Ulster Bank runs a charity initiative in branches to raise funds for their chosen charities. This year Edgeworthstown Branch raised funds for Irish Cancer Society in memory of their colleague, Amy Farrell who passed away earlier this year. Many events were held in the branch during the week, including a Cake Sale, Schools Colouring Competition and Guess Number of Sweets in The Jar. Ulster Bank Edgeworthstown would like to thank all their customers for their support and donations last week during the fundraising events. Thanks also to all the local schools for their participation in the Colouring Competition. Total raised in branch for the week was €1360.96. Ulster Bank will match these funds.
