It's a case of 'double your money' for Shekinah as Skipton Building Society make a second £1,000 donation to boost our work during the COVID-19 crisis.

Shekinah received their first donation as part of Skipton's inaugural £40,000 Community Giving Scheme.  Now, because of the testing times many charities find themselves in, the Society has decided to make a further £1,000 donation to Shekinah.

As part of Skipton's Community Giving Scheme last year, 40 groups and charities across the UK received a £1,000 pot of funding after being nominated by mortgage brokers or intermediary firms.  Shekinah was very kindly nominated by James Webster from the Mortgage Advice Bureau on Budshead Road, Plymouth.

Paul Fenn, Skipton's Head of Business Development, said:

"We are delighted to raise another £40,000 to the 40 hardworking groups which were successful in our Community Giving Scheme and are doing essential work for people such as the homeless.  During the COVID-19 crisis we acknowledge the extra pressure being put on these charities and that is why we have made this donation."
