Louth charities are among thousands to benefit across the country thanks to the generosity of customers at the UK’s second largest building society.

Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation, which is largely made up of customers donating the pence of their annual interest, has announced it has donated more than £6million since its first donation in 1999, with an amazing £9,319 being donated to charities in Louth alone.

Louth Museum and Louth Living Well Project are just two examples of good causes that have been on the receiving end of donations after being recommended for support by customers locally – with each donation contributing to the Charitable Foundation reaching the £6million milestone.

Claire Ravenscroft, manager of the Louth branch of Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, commented: “It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to support the Charitable Foundation’s fantastic announcement that it has broken the £6million barrier.”

“I am especially pleased to see that many of these donations have been made in support of charities and good causes in Louth andin our surrounding communities,” added Mike Rice, proprietor of MJR Financial Services in Louth which has a Yorkshire Building Society agency.
