Trafford community group receives funding after being unearthed amongst thousands in big 160 campaign

First published in

TRAFFORD-based community group, Trafford Pensioners Society, has received a cash boost after being named as one of Skipton Building Society’s ‘Big 160.

The group secured a slot as a winner in its Grassroots Giving initiative after winning the hearts and minds of the public and triumphing over nearly 1,000 other applicants across the country.

After being shortlisted in the campaign by the UK’s fourth largest building society, the group’s application was then in the hands of the public vote, to determine if they were to win £500 in funding.

Shortlisted on Trafford Pensioners Society’s story was shared nationally, as well as via Skipton’s social media activity - as a result the group secured a big enough proportion of the 20,000 votes received to be crowned a winner.
