Employees from BNY Mellon offices nationwide have shown their support for Wexford charities by raising over €20,000 for two causes.

The Hope Centre Cancer Support Centre and the Wexford Hospice Homecare Service will both benefit from the money, which was raised through cake sales, a raffle and the participation of staff members in the Hope and Dream 10 k road race. Employees worked a combination of 660 volunteering hours in an effort to raise the funds.

Members of the Wexford branch of BNY Mellon took part in the race, as well as those from Dublin and Cork. BNY Mellon's Gavin Keogh was the overall winner on the day.
