Our Community work


Playing our part in the Community

Bath Building Society works with many local charities, schools, community groups and organisations every year. We have a number of initiatives and sponsorships that we run and you can find out more about those on this page.

Local Events We Support

The Firework Poster Competition and Bath Fireworks Display – in conjunction with The Rotary Club Bath, we have helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds over the 41 years that we have been the main sponsor of the Fireworks event in Bath.

We also run the Firework Safety Poster Competition in primary schools and most people who have attended a primary school in Bath will have taken part in our Firework Safety Poster Competition over the years.

The Boules - we are a "Little Sponsor" of the Bath Boules event that is held in June each year in Queen Square and we enter a team into the tournament. All monies raised from this event go to a number of local charities.

Bath in Bloom - we are a sponsor of Bath in Bloom. In June of 2014 a sculpture named Xylem was unveiled in Parade Gardens which we have proudly sponsored and it is celebrating 50 years of Britain in Bloom.

The Festival of Motoring -  we have sponsored the Arena at the Festival for the past two years.

The Carol Service at Bath Abbey - in 2016 we are supported the Rotary's Carol Service that they have been organising for many years.

Balloon Flights

The Society sponsors a hot air balloon which enables us to give away a limited number of tickets each year to good causes in and around Bath for fund-raising purposes. The flying season runs approximately from April through October so we strongly encourage requests for tickets to be with us early in the year, please contact Tiffany at tiffany@bibs.co.uk if you would like to get a flight voucher for a charity or community group.
If you would just like to buy tickets to fly in the balloon it is run by www.bathballoons.co.uk and you can find out more at their website.
