Yorkshire Building Society wants people to nominate small charities and good causes in the community to receive a share of £150,000 as part of its 150th anniversary celebrations.

The society’s charitable foundation has made the donation available as part of its annual Make a Difference campaign.

Colleagues at the society’s branch on Bethel Street are calling on local residents and shoppers to call in to the branch and nominate a charity or good cause close to their heart between Monday, August 18, when they are having a tea party from 10am-4pm, and Saturday, August 23.

All nominations will be considered to receive a £100 share of the charitable foundation’s anniversary donation.

Kathryn Hall, manager of the Brighouse branch of Yorkshire Building Society, said: “We’re all really excited to get involved in the Society’s 150 year celebrations and to have our branch be part of a £150,000 giveaway that could help benefit our local community is just brilliant.

“The Make a Difference campaign is our opportunity to help some of the smaller causes that can often be overlooked for donations but to whom £100 could really have a positive effect.”
