From this week, the Society’s agency at Ward House Mortgages & Life on Union Street, Ryde will be taking part in Small Change Big Difference Month where people can nominate their favourite local charity or good cause for the chance to bag a £100 donation.
The Society will be donating a total of £100,000 to charities or good causes that matter most to the people living in the communities it serves.
Small Change Big Difference Month is funded by Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation which is supported by its own members who have signed up to the Small Change Big Difference scheme.
The scheme enables mortgages and savings customers to donate the pennies from the annual interest on their accounts to help a variety of charities and good causes.
Michael J Ward, proprietor of Ward House Mortgages & Life said:
“Smaller local charities and good causes can often struggle to obtain the funding they need – and they are exactly who we want people on the Isle of Wight to nominate for the chance to win a donation.
“Small Change Big Difference Month is our way of giving something back to our community so please come in and nominate your favourite local charity or good cause to be one of the lucky thousand to receive a donation.”
Nominations can be submitted until Saturday 15th October, with successful charities and good causes being notified in November.
