Bath Building Society hands out £6,500 in Charity Awards 2022
Posted on 16th June 2022
Eight Charities and Community Groups from the local area are sharing £6,500 from Bath Building Society’s Annual Charity Awards scheme.
The Awards were established in 2006 to support as many local initiatives as possible from the growing number of requests that the Society receives each week asking for support.
Kevin Gray, Chief Executive of the Society said:
“The Awards are very important to us and are a way for the Society to “give something back” to the local community. It is amazing the work some of these organisations do and the local people that they help and on such little funding, I’m just glad we can help!
I am really pleased how the number of applications continues to increase year on year and this year is no different. I’d like to thank the Judges for spending their time to help choose the winners of our Awards; Alan Keeling from The Rotary Club Bath, Angela Emms from The Quartet Community Foundation and my colleagues Tiffany Hardie-Albutt and Layla Jones. It was a tough competition, but we found our winners in the end!”
