Belper branch in the news
Team not shy in raising cash for young athlete
Business owners and supporters across Belper came together to help our branch raise over £100 for a local sporting starlet.
Nearby companies donated prizes for participants in our coconut shy at the town’s annual Belper Games, attended by hundreds of people.
The money raised went to 400m hurdler and relay runner Alex Knibbs, from Duffield, who took time out from training to attend the event. He will use the funds to assist with the costs of travelling to training.
Alex is part of the SportsAid scheme, which The Nottingham has supported since 2013 and helps young athletes achieve their aims.
A contribution to school’s next chapter
A Belper primary school was able to turn a new page – after we stepped in to help with funds to help renovate its library.
Branch colleagues attended a St John’s C.E. Primary School fete and ran a penalty shoot-out where people could take spot-kicks against building society mascot Robin Hood.
For children it was for fun, however if adults scored they were entered into a raffle and a chance of winning a hamper. That netted £70 - money which was donated to the school to put towards revamping their library.
