Here are some of the ways we get involved
The Society provides financial support and practical assistance to local charities and organisations through its associated Charitable Foundation and the Society’s Charity Day Off scheme, which gives all members of staff a day off each year to work with local charities and good causes.
In addition the Society gets involved with many local community based events covering a range of activities.
We understand that Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had such a devastating impact to so many, so we have tried our best to support various charities and community groups throughout this pandemic..
Thank you NHS and all key workers
Society employees, their children and grandchildren have been busy getting creative. Lots of messages of thanks and rainbows are brightening up our branch walls, doors and screens.
