A right royal knees-up for seven Black Country charities

Charity representatives waving Union flagsJoining the rest of the Black Country community who are in a celebratory Jubilee mood are seven local charities who have received funding from the Tipton and Coseley Building Society’s Charitable Foundation.

The Tipton’s Charitable Foundation has awarded cheques with a collective value of over £4,610 to six locally based charities, which include, Cares Sandwell, Ideal for All, Listening Books, Murray Hall Community Trust, Sandwell Young Carers, Tipton Education Fund and The BUDS Centre.

In addition, the Charitable Foundation has pledged to double the amount raised at the Tipton’s Charity Golf Day in July, with equal amounts going to Beacon Centre for the Blind and Compton Hospice.

Twice a year a panel of Society staff and members of the local community come together to allocate funds and this year, the Tipton’s Charitable Foundation expects to donate over £10,000 to health and education charities based in the West Midlands.

John Miller, The Tipton’s general manager and secretary, said: “It’s always a pleasure to donate much needed funding to such great local causes and I hope the cash will help towards their continued success throughout 2012 and beyond.”
