Metro Bank supports charity with 'Magic Money Tree'

10 December 2021

Metro Bank have partnered with Acorns Children's Hospice this Christmas to help the two million children in the United Kingdom who live in relative poverty.

From Wednesday 1 December – Monday 3 January the UK’s community bank has chosen various children’s charities to partner with this festive season across its 17 regions.

Metro Bank stores across the West Midland regions – that’s Birmingham, Solihull, Wolverhampton and Merry Hill – are teaming up to raise donations for Acorns Children’s Hospice which provides palliative care, psychological and emotional support to terminally ill children and families.

Their Magic Money Christmas Trees will be covered with magicgold coins that can transform into much-needed donations for the charity.

Customers and non-customers alike are invited to pop into a Metro Bank store to make donations. Cash donations will be accepted over the counter or through the Magic Money Machine and cashless donations can be made by scanning the QR code on the ‘magic’ gold coins.

Alternatively, donations can be made online. Physical items such as children's clothes and toys will be much appreciated.

James Baughan, regional director at Metro Bank said: “As a community bank we’re proud of our commitment towards supporting our local communities during these difficult times.

“We believe every child deserves a gift for Christmas so we’re delighted to be partnering with such a worthy cause.  We hope that our Magic Money Christmas Trees will inspire more people to support children in their local community and help us spread some love and care this Christmas.”
