Help Leeds celebrate their 10th anniversary in Doncaster this weekend

Leeds Building Society is inviting the people of Doncaster to join them for an open day in the branch, at 8 Frenchgate, this Saturday (17th August), to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Society first opening a branch in Doncaster.

Entertainment on the day will include visits from the Doncaster Rovers mascot ‘Donny Dog’ and ‘DJ Traxie,’ the Trax FM Bear. In addition, there will be food and drink available on the day and the event will enable people to meet Leeds Building Society’s friendly team in the branch.

Melissa Foulis, Leeds Building Society Doncaster Branch Manager said, “Excitement has been building in the branch for many weeks in the build up to the Open Day. I am looking forward to seeing as many people as possible in the branch on Saturday 17th August. There’s a great deal of fun to be had, including meeting Donny Dog and DJ Traxie, who will be handing out sweets and fun packs.

“As well as this, to mark our 10th anniversary we have launched ‘The Doncaster Instant Access Account,’ an exclusive account paying 2.00% including a 0.75% bonus until 31st December 2013. Furthermore, the account offers instant access at any time and has a minimum investment of only £100.

“Our exclusive Doncaster instant access account is a simple and straightforward account with a great rate of 2.00% and 100% access. Unlike many of the products on the market there are no catches and no requirements to open any linked accounts. I would recommend this account as an essential addition to a customer’s investment portfolio.

“Our friendly and welcoming staff provide a local feel in the branch, where many customers are known by name. This great, personalised customer service is combined with the national presence of the UK’s 5th largest building society, which enables us to offer a great savings account such as this.”

For more information, customers can call into the Leeds Building Society Doncaster Branch at 8 Frenchgate, Doncaster, DN1 1QQ on Saturday 17th August or call Melissa Foulis on 01302 730485.
