Have your say and support our chosen charities
Newbury Building Society’s 160th Annual General Meeting (AGM) takes place at Donnington Valley Hotel on Monday 27th February 2017, commencing at 11am. The AGM isn't just an important time of year for the Society; it's an important time for our Members too.
If you’re a Member, by voting you get to decide who's on our board of directors and have your say on a number of resolutions. This year, not only does your vote enable you to exercise your Membership rights, but it enables the Society to support organisations and charities local to our branches. The Society will donate 15p for every paper vote cast, 50p for every vote sent through our website and 50p for those attending to be split between the Society’s eight community charities.
We encourage you to vote. The eight charities listed below represent your choices.
Abingdon/Didcot branch - Helen and Douglas House is an Oxford-based hospice caring for terminally ill children, young adults and their families.
Basingstoke/Alton branch - St Michael’s Hospice enables anyone faced with a life-limiting illness, to attain the highest possible quality of life by providing a choice of specialist care and support.
