Those who consider all bankers are greedy and selfish types whose only objective is to line their pockets at the expense of the rest of the community should heed the heartening example set by former banker Gary Downie of Chester.

Downie has spent £10,000 of the cash he earned as a banker setting up a charity, StreetKleen, to clear up dog-fouling in the Broughton area of Chester, where he lives and has children at school. Dog faeces pose a serious health risk to children and many dog-owners in the area do not pick up the mess their dogs drop, despite laws obliging them to do so. It is hoped that the charity will expand across the UK.
