Giving back to our communities
- As part of our charity partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland, we raised £88,000 and all of our branches now have at least one colleague trained as a ‘dementia friend’. This demonstrates our commitment to be part of the nationwide movement aiming to create safe, more inclusive, understanding and friendly communities for people living with dementia.
- Through our award winning Grassroots Giving programme, we gave £82,000 to community groups voted for by the public.
- We also donated £150,000 to the Skipton Building Society Charitable Foundation, which enabled the Foundation to support registered charities involved in helping people of all ages across the UK.
Today we also announced the intention of a merger with Holmesdale Building Society. The merger is subject to approval by the members of Holmesdale Building Society and confirmation by the Prudential Regulation Authority. Holmesdale is based in Surrey and has one branch and 7,500 members.
In March, members will receive a copy of ‘Your Society in Focus’ a full review of 2017. Watch out for your pack or follow us on social media to hear more about our performance.
