LOCAL charities were donated £100 by a building society as part of their annual charity giveaway.
Four Driffield organisations received money during Yorkshire Building Society’s Make a Difference Week.
The charities were: Driffield Friends of Girl Guiding, First Steps Pre-School, Yorkshire Wolds Railway Restoration Project and Royal British Legion Driffield.
Over a week during the summer, Yorkshire Building Society invited customers and the Driffield community to call into its agency at Jackson Robson Licence, Exchange Street, to nominate a charity they would like to see receive the donation.
Pat Dean, of the Driffield agency, said: “Make A Difference Week has been a fantastic success, with some of our wonderful local charities and good causes receiving a nomination for support.
“As a building society we try and support the charities in the areas where our members live and work and I hope that these donations will truly make a difference in Driffield.”
The Society’s Charitable Foundation have run the Make Difference Week giveaway for five years and in that time have given away more than £500,000 to charities across the country.
