Singing banker adds X Factor to charity ride

BICYCLE RACE: Christian Neroni with Helen Chapman (left) and Annabel Prior at NatWest in Tunbridge Wells

NATWEST staff took part in a sponsored 700-mile singing ‘cycle ride’ in local branches last week, along with a former X Factor contestant.

Every NatWest branch across the country was raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust in its own way, but local staff chose a sponsored cycling and singing bike ride to Land’s End and back – though without leaving their branches unattended.

Fifteen local NatWest staff members, on Mount Pleasant in Tunbridge Wells and on Station Road in Paddock Wood, cycled in relay all week to get in their miles.

The cycling singers in Tunbridge Wells included Christian Neroni, who was an X Factor contestant in 2005, along with his twin brother Adam. Christian is now a Senior Personal Banker with NatWest in Tunbridge Wells.

“We are raising as much as we possibly can and have set ourselves a target of £500 minimum,” said Helen Chapman and Annabel Prior, while pedalling.

The branches had hoped that Stonegate-based rock star Roger Daltrey, of The Who, who is an honorary patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust would drop by – and join in!
