THREE Coventry-based charities are to benefit from Yorkshire Building Society members’ small change.

A total of £100,000 has been donated by the Society’s Charitable Foundation – who will spread the money across 1,000 other charities.

Haven, Coventry resource centre for the blind and ego performance co, were among those to be given a £100 donation after being nominated at the Coventry branch of Yorkshire Building Society.

The Charitable Foundation is funded through the Small Change Big Difference scheme where members donate the pennies from the annual interest on their accounts to help charities and good causes.

Leigh Regimbeau, customer representative of the Coventry branch of Yorkshire Building Society, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came into the branch to nominate a charity for a donation.

“At Yorkshire Building Society we are committed to our community and I hope these donations will enable the charities to carry on their wonderful work here in Coventry.”

More than three quarters of a million Yorkshire Building Society accounts contribute to the Small Change Big Difference scheme.
