RBSI staff help Women's Aid safe house

The Women's Aid safe house in the Island is now a much brighter and cheerful place thanks to the efforts of staff members from Royal Bank of Scotland International.

They undertook a special project under the auspices of the Bank's 'Get Your Hands Dirty' scheme.

Under the programme, staff members can nominate worthwhile initiatives and those chosen, benefit from £1,000 of finance from RBS International's community investment.

Product Marketing Manager Jo Corkill, one of the organisers, says 'Women's Aid is a little known charity which provides long and short-term accommodation for women and children who may otherwise have nowhere else to go, having escaped an abusive relationship.

The team from RBSI painted a playroom, installed a DVD player and a new blind. They also provided new toys and pictures and a desk where children can do their homework.
