We rounded off our Junior Newbury Building Society activities for 2023 at Rush Common Primary School in Abingdon.
The communities in which our branch network operates form the heart of the Society.
We are committed to giving something back to the communities in which our members and employees live and work. Each year we take part in a number of community events and help by giving donations and sponsorship to community organisations, groups and teams.
The employees at Newbury truly care about their customer outcomes and their fantastic culture shines through from the top. They are pillars in the local community and dedicate so much time and energy to volunteering and donating to allow community projects to run.
