The 2019 Charity Awards


NOW CLOSED FOR ENTRIES - WINNERS ANNOUNCED 18th June 2019 
We are now welcoming entries for the Bath Building Society Charity Awards 2019. 

Eight Charities and Community Groups from the local area will share £6,500 from our Annual Charity Awards programme.  A further three organisations will receive a pair of Bath Building Society hot air balloon tickets which can be used to raise funds. 

Now in the 13th year the Charity Awards were established to support as many local initiatives as possible from the growing number of requests for support that the Society receives each year.  One charity will be nominated Charity Of The Year and benefit from year-round fundraising support from the Society's employees.

The deadline for applications is 31st May 2019.  Shortlisted entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges on Tuesday, 4th June.  The judging panel will include the incoming Mayor of Bath, representatives from The Rotary Club, Bath and The Quartet Community Foundation alongside Bath Building Society colleagues.

In 2018 the Charity Awards supported local groups and charities including The Community Bus; Bath Area Play Project; Bath Foodcycle; PEOPLE; The Keep In Touch Club; Cerebal Palsy Plus, Bristol; Hop, Skip & Jump South West; The Fluency Trust, Swindon; Caryford Community Hall and Bath MS Society.
