Chance to nominate charities for cash help
4:48pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
THE public are being urged to help find local charities and good causes in their community who deserve to receive a share of £100,000.
Next Monday, September 16, the Northallerton branch of Yorkshire Building Society will launch Make a Difference Week – a campaign where customers of the branch and the public can nominate a charity they would like to see receive support.
All charities nominated will then be considered to receive a £100 share of the £100,000 the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation is looking to donate.
Branch manager Liz Gunning said: “Make A Difference Week is a chance for the people of our town to tell us exactly which charities mean the most to them and they would like to see us support.
“This is our opportunity to help some of the smaller good causes that can often be overlooked for donations.
“We’ve made it as simple as possible for people to tell us about their favourite charity – all they have to do is call into the branch and fill in a form and within a few weeks their charity could get a cheque for £100.”
She added: “We’re always looking for opportunities to help some of the charitable organisations in our local area and Make A Difference Week is a brilliant chance for our customers and members of the public to help us do just that.”
