Metro Bank's call centre in Ilford collected £68,000 for BBC Children in Need last week.
On Friday, November 16 more than 100 Metro Bank employees donned their yellow Pudsey ears and volunteered their time to receive thousands of calls into the night to take donations for the annual fundraiser, which focuses on changing the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Last year Metro Bank supported over 3,500 community and in-store events across its branches.
The bank encourages their employees to volunteer and one day a year they give their time or skills to give back to their community.
