Savers Help to Raise over 7,000 for the Sparkle Appeal

1 June 2017

Serennu Centre

The Society is pleased to have presented a cheque for over £7,563.37 to the Sparkle Appeal thanks to our ongoing Affinity Instant Savings Account partnership.

The Sparkle Appeal was launched by South Gwent Children’s Foundation in 2002, and supports children and young people with a disability or developmental difficulty living in Newport, South Monmouthshire and South Torfaen and their families. Sparkle are based at the Serennu Children’s Centre in Newport, and provide facilities and activities for recreation, leisure, sport and family engagement.

The centre provides integrated care for local children and their families, through treatments, therapies, support and advice, and a wide range of family, leisure and social activities, such as family swimming sessions, after school clubs and independent living skills, all under one roof.

The Sparkle Appeal was chosen by Monmouthshire Building Society to be an Affinity Instant Savings Account partner to help raise vital funds for their innovative and holistic services. The partnership enables supporters of the local Sparkle Appeal to help raise extra funds without even having to put their hand in their own pocket, and has raised over £33,000 for the Sparkle Appeal since April 2009.

Supporters of the appeal can open the Affinity Instant Account to build up their savings with a competitive rate of interest. Each year, Monmouthshire Building Society will make a donation to the appeal equivalent to 1% interest per annum of the daily balance held in their account. The more supporters save, the more money the appeal will receive.

Evie Jones, Fundraising and Events Officer, commented: ‘“We are extremely grateful for the Society’s continued support via the Affinity Account which has helped to raise an incredible amount of money so far and has allowed us to work on a range of projects that we would not otherwise be able to offer. Donations from businesses and individuals are vitally important to ensure that our essential services are able to continue and this account is an ideal way for supporters to give to the charity without even noticing doing so!”
