The NBS Community Champion Awards looks to celebrate those who want to improve the lives of others.
Newbury Building Society’s Newbury and Thatcham branches were delighted to present Newbury Cancer Care cheque for £2741, following a range of fundraising activities during 2018.
Fundraising activities included the in-branch events such as seasonal hamper prize draws, the competitive ‘name Santa’s baby reindeer’ Christmas competition and donations towards the popular #YourNBS annual calendar, to name only a few.
Branch staff also donated their two-day volunteering allowance towards maintaining the Rainbow garden; a much loved outdoor space which is overlooked by the Rainbow Rooms at West Berkshire Community Hospital.

The charity is fantastic in supporting local patients and families living with cancer, and it’s a cause close to many of our hearts. The amount raised is a testament to how hard the team has worked to raise as much money as possible during 2018, and we would like to thank the public for their kind donations and support.”
