Students from Welcombe Hills School, Loxley C E Community Primary School and Snitterfield Primary School were among the youngsters having their photographs taken with the trophy.

The trophy is at the branch, in Bridge Street, ahead of tonight’s Pride of Stratford Awards ceremony, which Barclays are sponsoring with DCS Europe.

Anyone who would like a photograph with the trophy is asked to donate £1. Barclays will then match the amount raised and all proceeds will be donated to the Shakespeare Hospice.
