Yorkshire Bank launches £150,000 Community Award Fund

Howard Lake | 16 July 2009 | News

Yorkshire Bank is launching a £150,000 fund to help support charities and community groups which focus on environment, volunteering, education and regeneration across its heartland.

The winning entry in each of the four categories will receive the ‘Colonel Akroyd Community Award’, named after the bank’s founder, plus £10,000. Four runners-up will receive a certificate plus £5,000. In addition to the main category awards, there will be a further 20 awards of £1,000 to projects that are considered ‘highly commendable’. There will also be an extra £10,000 award for the best overall entry.

Dean Cutbill, director for Yorkshire Bank, said: “As an organisation founded on community principles, Yorkshire Bank is proud to mark 150 years of continued support with these awards. And it is only right that the awards take their name from our founder, Col. Akroyd, whose vision of a bank to support local communities we still hold today.”
