We have recently honoured two of our employees for their commitment to the Society following a combined tenure of 50 years’ service.
2017 was a busy year for all of Newbury Building Society’s branches who have been fundraising tirelessly for their nominated charities – as voted for by you at the beginning of 2017.
Branch and head office staff have undertaken a variety of fundraising events and challenges to raise as much money as possible to help make a difference to the people living in the local community.
Fundraising events have ranged from volunteering days at centres and retail outlets, physically activities such as a virtual-cycle ride challenge, spring clean clothing sort-out, sponsored walks and runs, golf and sporting days, hamper prize draws, cake sales and our annual Newbury Building Society calendar.
Final totals for the 2017 year have now been calculated, and include all contributions to the Charity Account and all other donations made:
Andover: £832.20 for Andover Mind
Alton and Basingstoke: £1,505.51 for St Michael’s Hospice
Abingdon and Didcot: £2,250 for Helen and Douglas House
Hungerford: £593.73 for Prior’s Court School
Thatcham and Newbury: £1758.14 for Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust
Winchester: £1,000 for Friends of PICU
Wokingham: £967.87 for Sue Ryder
The Society’s head office also raised £1,200 for Alzheimer’s Society.
GRAND TOTAL: an incredible £10,107.45!
Emma Simms, Marketing and Communications Manager at Newbury Building Society said: “Thank you to all of our members who have donated to any of the charities listed above. We appreciate your support and kind donations. We look forward to making the rest of 2018 just as successful.”
