(PRWEB UK) 18 December 2012
Today Coventry Building Society is delighted to present another fantastic donation to Bath Rugby’s main charity with £4,329.12 raised by supporters investing in the Bath Rugby Club affinity accounts.
The savings accounts were first launched in 2004 by Stroud and Swindon Building Society, with the local rugby club benefiting from a donation equal to 1% of the average balance in the accounts. Following the merger with Coventry Building Society in 2010, the Coventry has been keen to continue this support.
Rebecca Green, Manager of the Bath branch of Coventry Building Society said: “We are delighted to have exceeded last years donation of £4222, which shows how much support the community has for their local club. The account has been very popular over the years and we look forward to continuing this success and making another impressive donation next year.”
Jimmy Deane, Foundation Manager at Bath Rugby Club said “We are really grateful for the continued support from savers for yet another tremendous donation of £4,329 - even higher than last year. We would like to thank everyone who has chosen to invest their savings in this account and support Bath Rugby Foundation.”
