Hunts bank staff stage Olympic torch relay

STAFF from Lloyds TSB in Huntingdon got in the Olympic spirit to welcome their own Olympic torch from colleagues in St Ives.

FUNDRAISING FLAME: Staff from Lloyds TSB in Huntingdon got in the Olympic spirit last Friday (June 17) as they welcomed their own Olympic torch from colleagues in St Ives.

The inter-branch mock-torch relay was organised by the bank to celebrate the one-year countdown to the start of the London 2012 Games.

The torch will visit every branch in the country over 70 days.

Staff from St Ives cycled the torch to Huntingdon where colleagues ran a relay along the high street before passing it on to staff from St Neots branch, who then took it to Bedford.

Lloyds TSB, a sponsor of the Olympics and Paralympics, is using the relay to raise money for the Save the Children charity.
