On Saturday 2 September, our third annual Family Fun Day took place at our head office at The Bailey, in support of two deserving charities. Activities included an inflatable assault course, a bouncy castle, face painting and a raffle with prizes including 43 hampers that were created by colleagues.
We had a great turnout and our team, their friends and families raised a fantastic total of over £3,000!. This was shared between Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice (Registered Charity Number 1052076), and Alzheimer's Society (Registered Charity Number 296645).
Take a look at what some of our team said about the day:
Alison Davies, Head of Digital
"Our third Family Fun Day and yet again, a huge success. These events take much organising and the team of volunteers who brought this to life did so with the usual passion, commitment and overall enthusiasm that only Skipton Building Society colleagues know how. We had many happy customers who in turn helped us raise over £3000 for Alzheimer's and Manorlands. A massive thank you to you all."
Craig Goold, Director of Operations
"It never ceases to amaze me how brilliant and passionate people are at Skipton and how fantastic the Family Fun Day is! A massive thank you to all of our colleagues who volunteered their time to make the day such a success, we couldn't have done it without you."
Marianne Millward, Portfolio Office Analyst
"The Family Fun Day was great and really showed the spirit our colleagues have for the community. The level of donations of prizes, money and time were astounding. I'm proud to have been part of it."
