The Sale branch of Leeds Building Society joined forces with the mutual’s national branch network to raise £700 for Age UK’s winter fundraiser, Bobble Day.

The branch, on School Road, promoted the charity’s ‘bobble badges’ earlier this year for a suggested donation of £1.

Laurie Boult, head of fundraising at Age UK, said: “We are delighted that the Leeds Building Society Sale branch, and the mutual’s other 64 UK branches, promoted our bobble badges last winter.

“The £700 raised by Leeds Building Society’s branches went towards Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign, helping to help keep older people warm and well in the winter.”
