Principality Building Society to extend charity support

Principality Building Society to extend charity support

Wales’s largest building society, Principality is extending its support from one to three charities for the next three years.

With the aim of widening the impact of its charitable giving and build stronger relationships with organisations and local communities, from this month, Principality Building Society will support Llamau, a homelessness charity for the vulnerable people and women in Wales; Cancer Research Wales, and School of Hard Knocks, a new charity that uses sport to help disadvantaged communities addressing issues surrounding unemployment, health and crime.

The building society has also announced it will match every £1 raised by colleagues up to a cap of £150,000. In 2015, Principality Building Society raised £90,000 for its Charity of the Year, Mind Cymru.

Julie-Ann Haines, customer director at Principality Building Society, said:

“Staff here at Principality have always shown such dedication and creativity when it comes to fundraising for our Charity of the Year, and I know it will be no different now we have three to support. We’re keen to widen our relationships with local organisations and support as many worthwhile causes as we can, and look forward to creating further bonds with these three charities over the next three years.”
