We’re extremely proud of the numerous community projects, charities and organisations we’ve supported across the last 12 months. Find out how our donation to the Central England Law Centre has made such a difference to the lives of those in need of support, through the eyes of their Chief Executive, Sue Bent.
Even a national lockdown didn’t stop our colleagues from helping out. Through climbing mountains on their stairs, going virtually around the world in 80 days, and even an online dog show, we raised over £70,000.
And it wasn’t just about raising funds either, our crafty colleagues got to work making PPE including scrubs, visors and masks.
Our people volunteer and share their skills with local charities and community groups.
And through our Charitable Foundation we've donated more than £1.3 million to deserving causes since 1998.
We know it’s been a difficult year for savers. The Bank of England Base Rate is at an all-time low, and while many of our variable accounts don’t track base rate, it still has an effect on how much we can pay our members.
This means we’ve had to make some really tough decisions about reducing the interest rates we pay.
