Barclays staff in Stratford with Premiership Trophy


Barclays gave football fans and their staff in Stratford the opportunity to see first hand the ultimate prize in English football - the Barclays Premier League Trophy.

Fans had their picture taken with the cup when it visited the Barclays branch in the Stratford Centre on Friday (24/8)

The UK-wide whirlwind tour of the trophy is designed to bring the most sought after prize in English football closer to fans.

Toni Ives branch manager said: “Many people will have seen the trophy on television but it is only when you see it close up that you realise just how impressive it is. We had a really great day and I am pleased to have given our customers the opportunity to see close up one of the biggest prizes in world football.”

The branch raised £230 for St Josephs Hospice, Hackney, during the day.

One of the most famous symbols in football the trophy is always flanked by two security guards when on display.
