Customers at Yorkshire Building Society in Ilford enjoyed some tea and cake as the branch celebrated its 150th anniversary.

Staff at the branch in High Road also asked members to nominate small charities and good causes in the community to receive a share of £150,000 as part of their Make a Difference campaign which was launched this week.

All nominated charities will be considered to receive a £100 share of the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation’s anniversary donation.

Branch manager, Amanda Kelly, said: “The Make a Difference campaign is our opportunity to help some of the smaller causes that can often be overlooked for donations but to whom £100 could really have a positive effect.

“We would love to be handing out money to our members’ favourite charities and good causes in the next few weeks.”
