BUILDING society staff have raised hundreds of pounds for their village community centre.
Employees of Yorkshire Building Society on Carr Lane in Slaithwaite held a fundraising day for Slaithwaite Community Centre.
A raffle, cake stall and book sale helped bring in £217 to help pay for new kitchen equipment at the Bankgate venue.
Building society branch manager Leanne Randall said: “It went really well and I was surprised how many people came in to see what we were doing.
“I’d like to thank all the local community for their support and their help putting up the balloons and a special thanks to Julia Calcraft for making so many lovely buns.”
Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation is contributing another £500 to the community centre, on top of the money raised at last Wednesday’s event.
