The Society made a £10,000 donation to Andrew Gale, Yorkshire County Cricket Club Captain, who accepted it on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The £10,000 cheque relates to 0.10% of the total balances in an affinity savings account offered by Leeds Building Society in conjunction with Marie Curie. This account provided customers with a great rate of interest, whilst making a donation to charity.

Gary Brook, Leeds Building Society’s Head of Corporate Communication, joined Andrew Gale on the pitch at Headingley Carnegie Stadium. Gary presented Andrew with a special cricket bat to mark the donation, emblazoned with the Marie Curie and Leeds Building Society logos and the £10,000 graphic.
