The Doncaster branch of Leeds Building Society supported the mutual’s overall effort earlier this summer in raising £750 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The branch, at 8 Frenchgate, joined the society’s other 64 national branches by selling pin badges for a suggested £1 donation to help raise these valuable funds. Customers visiting the branch had three separate designs to choose from - dogs, boots and the Macmillan logo.

Clara White (pictured), fundraising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We are so delighted to have the continued support of Leeds Building Society. Their recent £750 donation raised from the sale of our pin badges was very welcome, and will help us reach even more people that need our support. By purchasing our pin badges, people in Doncaster have been helping the 910 people who will be hit by the devastating news today that they have cancer.”

Melissa Foulis, Leeds Building Society’s Doncaster Branch Manager added: “It’s great news that we have continued our long standing and successful relationship with Macmillan Cancer Support. We are pleased that the pin badges, with three separate designs to choose from, proved popular with our customers in Doncaster earlier this summer.”
