Charity will benefit

CHILDREN’S charity NSPCC Cymru/Wales has been chosen by Principality Building Society as its Charity of the Year for 2008.

Principality, which has a branch in Ebbw Vale, is aiming to raise more than £50,000 to fund NSPCC projects which will help thousands of children in Wales.

Staff in the 50 Principality branches across Wales – including Ebbw Vale, Abergavenny and Blackwood - have already come up with some fantastic fundraising ideas for the year, like trade fairs, cake sales, and a sponsored three peaks challenge.

Graeme Yorston, Chief Operating Officer at Principality Building Society, said: “We are absolutely delighted that NSPCC Cymru/Wales has been chosen as our charity for the year.

“We are committed as a business to helping the charity to put a Full Stop to child cruelty. Record numbers of staff participated in the voting process to choose the charity this year from a shortlist of five well-deserving causes and we look forward to taking part in a number of fundraising activities throughout the year.”

Nerys Sales, Corporate Fundraising Manager at NSPCC Cymru/Wales, said: “Principality has always been very active working with and giving back to the community and we are delighted we have been chosen as their charity of the year. This kind of passion and support will ensure that more and more vulnerable children and young people in Wales will receive the support, advice and help they need.”
