Our Head of Sales and Marketing, Dean, reflects on the importance of building societies on the high street as we approach the 1st anniversary of our new-look Newbury branch.
The more money you save, the more money we give.
With this account you can still earn interest on your money, and the society will make an annual donation to the charity of your choice, matching the interest you’ve earned. As this account has a 35 day notice period, it takes away the temptation of impulse buying, helping you to save more.
As part of our community and charity programme, this account can help you to support one of our eight charity partners.
Please note: Our savings accounts are available to residents within our local operating area, defined as within the following postcodes: RG, OX, SP, GU, SO, SN, PO, HP & SL. We accept savings applications from existing members regardless of their postcode. We do not accept savings applications from new or existing members who live outside of the UK.

- Alzheimer's Society - the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, here for anyone affected by any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
