Furness Building Society customers have shown their support for Bolton Hospice by raising an incredible £8,460.61.
By opening a Bolton Hospice affinity account with Furness Building Society customers can get interest on their savings whilst also supporting the hospice. Each year the Furness makes a cash payment – from its own funds – to Bolton Hospice based on the average balances held in the accounts. So, this means that the more supporters save the bigger the cash payment Bolton Hospice will receive. In 2016 the account has raised £8,460.61.
Lorraine Melling , Furness Building Society’s Horwich Agency Team Leader said: “Bolton Hospice provide a fantastic service to people in our community and we are proud to support them by making this donation“
Stephanie Lacaille , Bolton Hospice said “We’d like to thank Furness Building Society for another wonderful donation, raised through the affinity account partnership. By opening an account, it’s the perfect way for our supporters to help the hospice at absolutely no cost to themselves and helps us to continue caring for local people with life-limiting illnesses. As a charity, we need to raise £3.2 million a year and it’s only through the kindness of companies such as Furness Building Society and local people that this made possible.”
