SKIPTON Intermediaries, the intermediary arm of Skipton Building Society has ensured 40 good causes across the whole of the UK will each benefit in a cash boost.

Each of the chosen charities will receive £1,000 so they can continue their good work.

Intermediaries were asked to nominate charities and community groups in Skipton Building Society’s second £40,000 Community Giving programme. .

Skipton Intermediaries launched Community Giving last year to give brokers the chance to reward organisations which support housing and homelessness.

Paul Fenn, Skipton’s Head of Business Development, said: “Following last year’s success, we are delighted to announce another 40 community groups and charities which will receive funding and we hope our donation enables them to continue to make a real difference in their work.”
