A charity organisation set up to help retired bankers is set to join the G20 protest march in London next week.

The newly formed Retired Old Bankers (ROB) group is among several other charities coming together to demand action from the influential group of world leaders on topics such as climate change, world poverty and nuclear disarmament.

Nick Fundz, a spokesman for ROB, said that the group was to demand recognition for the suffering of retired bankers, and would be requesting round the clock protection from customers who frequently write strong letters to the press criticising their pensions and bonus pay outs.

Mr Fundz maintained that ROB's protest would be peaceful, but couldn't be held responsible for other sectors of the protest march, such as the Salvation Army and Save the Children, who could have a violent agenda.
