The members who cast their votes for Hinckley & Rugby Building Society’s AGM have led to a £1,250 donation to the Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
Tom Stanyard, corporate partnership fundraiser at the Loughborough charity, visited the Society’s branch at Hinckley’s Castle Street to receive the donation from Hinckley & Rugby customer assistant Michaela Whitehurst.
The gift was generated thanks to Hinckley & Rugby pledging to donate 40p for each vote cast online and 20p per postal vote. Thousands of members voted for the Annual General Meetings resolutions, adding up to the £1,250 donation.
“We are so thrilled to once again receive this fantastic donation through the Building Society members’ votes. We are very proud to be associated with Hinckley & Rugby and its support means so much to us all here at Rainbows.”
As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can find care and support. The incredible team at Rainbows helps relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end.
“Thanks to our members supporting the democracy at the heart of our mutual Society, we are pleased to be helping the amazing and much valued work of Rainbows.”
