Help­ing to make a dif­fer­ence

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHAR­I­TIES re­ceived a cash boost as part of cel­e­bra­tions to mark a build­ing so­ci­ety’s an­niver­sary.

York­shire Build­ing So­ci­ety in High Street, Chal­font St Peter, joined branches across the coun­try to cel­e­brate 150 years of business by call­ing on the pub­lic to nom­i­nate char­i­ties to re­ceive £100.

The two char­i­ties nom­i­nated by vil­lagers in Chal­font St Peter were the Thames Val­ley Air Am­bu­lance and the Maria Tay­lor Char­ity, which pro­vides for the el­derly at Christ­mas.

Man­ager of the branch Steve English said: “I’m de­lighted that two worth­while causes nom­i­nated by our mem­bers in our lo­cal area, are part of the hun­dreds of lo­cal char­i­ties the so­ci­ety is sup­port­ing through­out the UK and I’m sure the money will be used to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity.

“Our an­nual Make a Dif­fer­ence cam­paign is al­ways very popular, but this year the so­ci­ety has been able to support more char­i­ties than ever be­fore thanks to the York­shire Build­ing So­ci­ety Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion’s gen­er­ous do­na­tion to mark the So­ci­ety’s 150th an­niver­sary.”
