Watford branch’s birthday gift to local charities

Leeds Building Society’s branch in Watford welcomed customers old and new to help it celebrate its 30th birthday.   

As part of the festivities, the Society shared a £600 birthday donation between three local good causes, chosen by branch colleagues. Visitors voted for their favourite charity to decide which received the largest share.

Hospice of St Francis, DRUM (Disability Recreation Unity Movement) and Luton and Dunstable Hospital neonatal unit received £300, £200 and £100 respectively following the public vote.  

“We were delighted to celebrate our milestone by making these donations,” said Farheen Zafar, Leeds Building Society’s Watford Branch Manager.

“Our team decorated the branch and gave cakes and goody bags to members and other locals who came by to join in. 

“We’re proud the Society has been helping the people of Watford to save and have the home they want since 1986."
