Clydesdale Bank has a strong tradition of supporting the communities in which we live and work.
In July 2008 we launched the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation (a charity registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator - Charity Number: SC039747) which continues the tradition of supporting people and their local communities. The Foundation provides funds to help registered charities, not-for-profit organisations, community and other voluntary organisations make life safer, healthier and better for all of us.
Following the success of the inaugural ‘Spirit of the Community Awards 2013’ the Foundation Trustees were pleased to announce earlier this year that The Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation was accepting applications for the ‘Spirit of the Community Awards 2014’. Applications closed in March and we are delighted to congratulate the following winners who will share a £75,000 funding boost to make a real difference in their local areas.
