Guide Dogs is our charity of the year in the North East

Colleagues at our branches in the North East have chosen Guide Dogs as their charity of the year for 2015.

Society colleagues in the region have pledged the results of all their fundraising activity this year to help the charity, and will be tackling a variety of challenges to bring in the cash. This includes two of our regional managers taking part in the Great North Run in September.

Also, our North East branches in Morpeth, Durham, Blyth, Whitley Bay, North Shields, South Shields, Wallsend, Newcastle and Chester-le-Street, and the processing centre at Silverlink Business Park, will be selling Guide Dogs pin badges throughout the year.

Other colleague initiatives planned at these branches include raffles, cake sales and coffee mornings.

Furthermore, all Leeds Building Society North East branches will be taking part in a joint fundraising initiative between 3rd and 10th October to coincide with National Guide Dogs Week.
