Peterborough branch’s birthday gift to local charities

Leeds Building Society’s branch in Peterborough welcomed customers old and new to help 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.

Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, the Amazon Ward at Peterborough Hospital and Guide Dogs for the Blind received £300, £200 and £100 respectively following the public vote.

“We were delighted to celebrate our milestone by making these donations,” said Julia Haycox, Leeds Building Society’s Peterborough Branch Manager.

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

“Our birthday party was also attended by Deputy Mayor Chris Ash and Deputy Mayoress Doreen Roberts.

“We’re proud the Society has been helping the people of Peterborough to save and have the home they want since 1987.”
