You did it! £26,000 raised for local charities
As a mutual building society, one of things that make us different – and which we’re very proud of - is our support for the communities we serve.
And that’s never been more important than during these challenging times. This prompted us to launch our fundraising campaign to raise money for three local charities whose funding has been hit by the Coronavirus outbreak: Home-Start Staffordshire Moorlands, Treetops Hospice Care and East Cheshire Hospice.
Like many charities across the UK, their fundraising activities have been affected by the recently introduced lockdown and social distancing measures put in place to help keep everyone safe.
We asked for donations from our staff and members of the public and pledged to match every pound donated up to a maximum donation from Leek United of £30,000. We’ve managed to raise £13,000.
This fantastic sum will be doubled by the Society, meaning the total donation will amount to just £26,000.
