Good causes welcome vital donations from building society

MUCH-needed funds have been donated to good causes by a Rugby building society.

Hinckley and Rugby Building Society’s Community Foundation has donated over £25,000 to seven local charities, helping them to deliver their vital services in the coming year.

The charities which received a share of the funds were Carers Trust – Heart of England, Green Towers – Hinckley Club for Young People, Stand Against Violence, The Bodie Hodges Foundation, Hinckley Homeless Group, Feed the Hungry, and Lutterworth Hygiene Bank.

Representatives from the charities were invited to attend the society’s Annual General Meeting to receive their funds and discuss how they will be used.




Chloe Scanlan, Fundraising Officer from Feed the Hungry, said: “The Society’s funding will support the renovation of an old mobile library to be used as our second mobile foodbank – providing food, cleaning products, and hygiene items to those struggling with the increased cost of living.

“This new vehicle will enable us to support more local people in areas such as Rugby.”


Hinckley and Rugby CEO Barry Carter added: “We’re committed to backing good causes in our neighbourhoods, and these charities provide a wide range of vital support that is hugely valuable to many local people.”

The Foundation was launched in 2022 to help local charities tackle important social issues.
