We are passionate about helping our local communities.
During the pandemic, we have focused on our community outreach activity, donating to key workers in a time of need.
In September 2020, we donated £10,267.09 to Mary Stevens Hospice on behalf of our members. This was the final amount accrued from our Save and Sponsor account, where members saw a proportion of the interest gained go to the hospice.
In addition to this, we sponsored Mary Stevens Hospice’s Tree of Light services for 2020, where they created a guided reflection video to help people remember their loved ones and reflect on the difficult year we have faced.
Our charity of the year is currently Black Country Mental Health, a mental health charity that aims to improve and promote recovery and wellbeing for people in the Dudley borough.
The Society is passionate about ensuring people of all ages have the financial literacy to make good financial decisions for their own wellbeing. Our goal is to focus on creating materials and sessions that will help young people to understand the benefits of saving and help with their financial futures.
