Three charities in the Louth area are among 1,000 around the UK to benefit from Yorkshire Building Society members’ small change.
The Society’s Charitable Foundation has donated a total of £100,000 to charities and good causes nominated by people during its Small Change Big Difference campaign. The Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary, St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice and LIVES were among those to be given a £100 donation each after being nominated at the Louth branch of Norwich & Peterborough (N&P) Building Society.
The Charitable Foundation is funded through the Small Change Big Difference scheme where members donate the pennies from the annual interest on their accounts to help charities and good causes.
Claire Corn, manager of the Louth branch, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came into branch to nominate a charity for a donation during our Small Change Big Difference campaign. I hope these donations will enable the charities to carry on their work here in Louth.”
