Lothian Disability Sport Benefit from BNY Mellon

Lothian Disability Sport Benefit from BNY Mellon

Lothian Disability Sport (LDS) are reaping the rewards of the recent Community Partnership with BNY Mellon as the company's staff recently raised a remarkable £1141.35 through their 'Dress Down Friday' policy. 

This policy allows staff to wear more informal clothing on a Friday each week, providing they donate a small amount of money in return.  This money is then kindly donated to a charity of choice each month with LDS fortunate enough to be picked for the month of July.  In addition to this highly significant amount, the company BNY Mellon also 50% match this amount - bringing the total figure raised to £1712.03!  Thanks is extended to everyone and BNY Mellon for their efforts in raising such a fantastic amount, and especially LDS committee member Colin Buchanan who was the driving force behind this piece of work.

Such a significant amount of money can make a large difference within disability sport, through club development or coach education & training.  However on this occasion, the Lothian Disability Sport committee have opted to use the money to support athletes to reach their sporting potential - providing financial support for athletes progressing through the performance pathway.  Hopefully this money can help an athlete(s) reach their goals, whether that is National or International competition.
