Skipton Building Society has donated another £40,000 to 40 UK good causes to help them during the Coronavirus crisis.

The Society initially awarded the groups £1,000 each as part of its Community Giving scheme.

In what is believed to be the first partnership of its kind with the UK’s intermediary market, Skipton, the UK’s fourth largest building society, provided the funding while brokers identified those organisations that deserved to receive a donation.

Paul Fenn, Skipton’s Head of Business Development, said: “We are delighted to donate another £40,000 to the 40 hardworking groups which were successful in our scheme and are doing essential work for people such as the homeless. During the Covid-19 crisis we acknowledge the extra pressure being put on these charities and that is why we have made this donation.”
