St Wilfrid’s Hospice, Pagham Association For The Elderly and Chestnut Tree House were among 1,000 charities around the UK to be given a £100 donation.

The Charitable Foundation is funded through the Small Change Big Difference scheme, where members donate the pennies fom the annual interest on their accounts to help charities and good causes.

The foundation’s purpose is to support good causes where members and staff live and work.

The three local charities were nominated at Yorkshire Building Society’s agency in Bognor Regis.

Martyn Allen, partner at the local agency, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came in to nominate a charity for a donation during our Small Change Big Difference campaign.

“At Yorkshire Building Society, we are committed to our community and I hope these donations will enable the charities to carry on their wonderful work here in Bognor Regis.”

Yorkshire Building Society’s Charitable Foundation has donated a total of £100,000 to charities and good causes nominated by people during its Small Change Big Difference campaign. More than three quarters of a million Yorkshire Building Society accounts contribute to the Small Change Big Difference scheme.
