Society supports local charities in annual awards
Posted on 29th June 23
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 Charity Awards are very important to us and a way for the Society to “give something back” to the local community. It is amazing the work some of these organisations and volunteers 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 our team choose the winners of our Awards; Alan Keeling from The Rotary Club Bath, Claire Wynne Hughes from The Quartet Community Foundation. It was tough to whittle down support to just eight charities, but we are happy to be supporting some incredible projects tackling very real issues in our community.”
