We rounded off our Junior Newbury Building Society activities for 2023 at Rush Common Primary School in Abingdon.
It's important that we give back to the communities in which our members and our employees live and work.
Part of this commitment is demonstrated by our branch charity partner scheme.
Our charity partners are chosen by our employees and our members. We aim to build long-term relationships with these charities to enable our people and our members to engage in meaningful fundraising, volunteering, and awareness-raising opportunities, at the same time as improving our local areas.

Each branch will review its charity partnership every 3 years or more.
