The Giro Bank was a well known financial institution in the UK, and lives on in the language through such terms as "to cash a Giro", as the Benefits Agency social security cheques would be cashed at a Post Office in the form of a Giro Cheque.
There is news on this as Girobank was bought out by the Alliance and Leicester Bank who have a very good arrangement by which the Post Office still plays a part in the over-the-counter work.
Another point about GiroBank is that the Giro logo was a cleverly designed symbol.
Anyway, if you'd like to bank with Giro Bank, the business has now moved to the Alliance and Leicester. I hope that helps.
