Over £9000 donated to local projects through Community Support Scheme for 2018

Newbury Building Society is delighted to have donated a total of £9164.56 to local community organisations – 27 different projects - as part of its Community Support Scheme in 2018. 

The objective of the Community Support Scheme is to provide financial assistance to a wide range of local organisations involved in improving community life within the Society’s ten branch towns. 

The scheme is segmented into four key focus areas that align with the Society’s core values:

  • Promote and encourage sport activity for all ages and circumstance
  • Promote and encourage activity in the arts
  • Support education and development for all ages, ability and circumstance
  • Conservation and environmental work within the community

Examples of projects range from: contributing to an outside learning space for children with special needs; social activities for the vulnerable; sensor equipment for those living with visual impairment; sponsorship of events who support vulnerable people living in society; youth sport teams and much, much more. 

Emma Simms, Marketing and Communications Manager at Newbury Building Society said: “With a strong commitment and desire to support the local community, whether this is through volunteering, sponsorship, fundraising or charitable donations, the Society recognises the struggles many people face throughout their daily lives.

This is why Newbury Building Society is committed to supporting those who work tirelessly to help improve the local community through our Community Support Scheme. The feedback so far has been tremendous and we’re delighted to play a part in improving the lives of others. With 2018 now wrapped-up, we look forward to seeing applications for the next round of funding in the Spring.”

Applications for the Society’s Community Support scheme funding are considered twice a year at the beginning of May and the beginning of November. An application form can be found on the dedicated webpage. Typical award amounts start from £100 with a cap of £500.
