Saffron Building Society hands out funding to charities

21st May 2024

Eight charities across the east of England are sharing more than £25,000 from the Saffron Building Society Community Fund.

Among the recent charity grant recipients are Brightview Farm in Uttlesford, Dig It Community Allotment and Enterprise East Group CIC – both in Saffron Walden.

Saffron Building Society launched the Community Fund 12 years ago, to provide grants to charities, community groups and volunteer organisations, in partnership with Essex Community Foundation (ECF).

Claire Hunnable, community business partner at Saffron Building Society, said: “It’s a real privilege to be able to support our local communities with the Saffron Community Fund, and to see the impact this will make to each organisation brings us such joy.

“At Saffron Building Society, we do the right things for the right reasons and reaching out to worthy community causes across the East of England is paramount to us and our members.
