Young carers and their families will benefit from kind-hearted customers of Yorkshire Building Society's Barton agency, based at RNS Chartered Accountants' High Street office.

A £500 donation has been made to Young Carers (North Lincolnshire) from the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

The money will provide first-aid training to those under 18 who regularly care for a family member who is mentally or physically ill or has a disability, drug or alcohol problem.

Young Carers (North Lincolnshire) provides information, advice and support to young people in this position and professionals who may know of someone carrying out this role.

RNS partner Alex Douglas said Barton colleagues nominated them for a donation after a conversation with customers from the Rotary Club of Barton-upon-Humber who work with the charity.

He said: “We're committed to supporting local charities where our members live and work, and are pleased we could secure a £500 donation for Young Carers (North Lincolnshire) from Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

“Providing first aid training for these young people could save the life of someone they care for so we feel proud to support them.”

Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation is funded through the Small Change Big Difference® scheme where members donate the pennies from the interest on their accounts once a year to help smaller UK charities.

In 2018, the Charitable Foundation donated £439,304 to 317 registered charities nominated by members and colleagues from around the UK.
