This is one of many fantastic fundraising activities across the UK including branch coffee mornings, a Three Peaks Challenge and sponsored silences. Together we have raised over £150,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support , a great way to celebrate our long standing partnership and the 25th anniversary of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Thank you for your continued support of our Citizenship activities, without people across Nationwide pulling together, amazing achievements like this would not be possible. A special thank you to Baxter Storey and their team for their amazing support during the world record attempt.
