Coventry Building Society Itermedaries recently presented us with a cheque for £3067.12 raised from the event in June ‘The Intermediary 500’ where 14 colleagues walked, swam, ran and cycled a total distance of 701km, all the money came from sponsorship from friends, family and other CBS staff.

Leah Thomas (CBS) wrote the following:

I just wanted to do a massive shout out to everyone that made the event as successful as it was.

It was incredible to see many people came together to raise an unbelievable total of £3067.12 and cover a distance of 701km or 436 miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our original target was £2500 and 500km.

How did we manage to achieve this incredible feat you may be asking yourself, well here’s break down how we did this:


CBS also gave us food and bags of clothes on the day, as well as a child’s bike to go to our families service.
