Olympic fever hits city’s professionals
MORE than 90 members of Worcester’s business and professional community joined Lloyds TSB Commercial department at a networking event in the bank’s city centre premises on the Cross in preparation for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Guests at the event included Chris Pennell, first team captain of Worcester Warriors Rugby Club, together with former Olympian David Moorcroft, who entertained the audience with memories from his own successful athletic career. He stressed the positive impact the UK-wide London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay is likely to have in the lead up to the Games. As part of its 70 day UK wide tour, the Olympic Torch Relay will visit Worcester on Thursday, May 24, and will provide a unique opportunity for local people to see the Olympic Flame for themselves.
Andy Cole, relationship manager at Lloyds TSB Commercial, Worcester, said: “The event was a great success.”
