Building Society to support fifteen charities

The Tipton’s Charitable Foundation has awarded cheques collectively worth over £7,500 to fifteen local charities.

Beneficiaries included Employability UK, Christians Against Poverty, Jubilee Park Academy, The Honeypot Children’s Charity, Silvertrees Academy Trust, NICE, Acorns Children’s hospice, The Giving Hands Mission, Sandwell Citizen Advocacy, Tipton Youth Project, BUDS Sandwell, Birmingham St. Mary’s Hospice, and three local schools. Dan Smith, Customer Service Adviser at the Tipton, said:

"As a Building Society, our roots started with the local community. It is important to us to give back, and help the community where we can. Many of the charitable organisations we support are heavily reliant on donations, to allow them to continue with the good work they do.

"We are committed in helping these where possible, and it’s great to know that we are making such a positive difference across the region.”

Twice a year a panel of Society staff and members of the local community come together to allocate funds to health and education charities based in the West Midlands. The Tipton’s Charitable Foundation launched in 1999 and has donated over £200,000 to local charities since then.  

For information about the society, you can visit or drop in at one of the branches in Tipton, Coseley, Sedgley or Bilston.
