STAFF at the Chester-le-Street branch of Barclays Bank helped raise £3,000 for Sunderland Adaptive Snowsports (SAS) at a charity night.
SAS gives young people with disabilities and medical needs the chance to go skiing.
It is planning a fourth visit to the French ski resort of La Plagne with ten young people from the city.
Charity spokesman Mike Stansfield said: "I am very grateful to the employees at Barclays for their fantastic efforts and support. The money raised will make a big difference to young people’s lives."
