IS it Superman? Is it Batman?

No, it’s MetroMan.

Well, to be accurate, its Lee Currier, Local Director at Metro Bank in Merry Hill who is set to cycle a 40 mile loop to raise money for the Black Country Food Bank.

Lee will be cycling from Merry Hill to the Metro Bank in Wolverhampton and back on Black Friday, Friday, Nobvember 27,, along the Black Country canal network.

He has already collected more than £700 for the Food Bank.

For the first leg of the journey Lee will be joined by Lakh Singh, his colleague and Local Director for the bank’s Wolverhampton store.

During the first lockdown in March, the Metro Bank team in Merry Hill began collecting donations for the food bank in its banking hall and received an overwhelming response from local customers, with many individuals and businesses donating goods.

Lee said: “When the pandemic hit earlier this year our store acted as a collection hub accepting donations for our community’s most vulnerable. I’m delighted to continue to support the Black Country Food Bank..

“2020 has been like nothing that we’ve ever seen before and food banks need our support more than ever..”

Jen Coleman from the Black Country Food Bank said: “We cannot continue to do the work we do without the help of local people and it is these contributions that will help some of the most desperate people in our area - those struggling to make ends meet and unable to afford the basic needs in life”
