WHILE the rest of us slept soundly in our beds a few Saturdays ago, two members of the Solihull-based Secure Trust Bank, Anne Mckenning and Lauren Benson, spent seven hours raising over £1,800 for breast cancer when they took part in the annual 26 mile ‘Moonwalk’ in London.
During the course of the walk Lauren, one of Secure Trust Bank’s human resources team, fell and fractured her arm. Lauren said: “I wouldn’t have minded but I’d just passed comedienne Jennifer Saunders when I lost my footing and fell. I carried on with the walk since I wanted to do my bit for such a great cause.”
The two women completed the Moonwalk in traditional attire of decorated bras along with 15,000 other walkers.
Head of Secure Trust Bank’s HR Team, Anne Mckenning said: “Having seen breast cancer touch the lives of many of our friends and colleagues we felt this was such a worthwhile cause and we were keen to do something to help.”
