The Tipton provides over £5,800 to Midlands Charities in latest donation through its Charitable Foundation
Many UK charities continue to struggle following increased demand for their services and loss of fundraising income, because of the coronavirus pandemic. With most fundraising events cancelled throughout the pandemic period, it has been a particularly hard time for West Midland charities. The Tipton and Coseley Building Society, through its Charitable Foundation, is therefore delighted to be making much needed donations to local Midlands charities.
The Tipton has proudly donated £5,817 across seven West Midland health and educational charities. Twice a year, the panel made up of Tipton employees and members of the community come together to allocate funds to local charities to help raise educational standards, increase health provision and support the hospice movement. Since the launch of the Foundation in 1999, more than £150,000 has been donated to health and education charities across the West Midlands.
This latest donation from the Society’s Charitable Foundation will go towards helping WMA Community Fitness Centre, Sandwell Advocacy, Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, The Christmas Lunch Project, Omega, Redthread and Better Understanding of Dementia for Sandwell.
Richard Newton, CEO at the Tipton said: "The pandemic has clearly made it exceptionally difficult for charities with many suffering from reduced fundraising and increased demand for their services. So we hope our latest donation to these wonderful charities will go a long way to help them continue the fantastic job they do in our local community.’
