Age UK receive Charity of the Month donation. Representatives from Age UK thanked customers of Beverley Building Society for choosing them as Charity of the Month in February. Julie Dearing from Age UK said 'this has come at an ideal time as from 1st April 2018, Age UK Hull and Age UK East Riding are to join forces in order to strengthen the support and delivery of services for older people across the whole of East Yorkshire. Both organisations have worked closely for many years helping and assisting older people across the area and collectively, by joining forces they will be better placed to meet the needs of older people. Pam Davies CEO Age UK Hull commented ‘ as with most voluntary sector organisations, we have both identified that we could be much stronger working together and it makes sense for us to unite our organisations in order to be able to both grow and strengthen our offer to older people across both Hull and the East Riding. We are very grateful for the support from Beverley Building Society which will help to ensure we continue to help older people in this area'.
