Vernon shares £3,000 fund between five local charities

Stockport’s Vernon has announced the five Community Stars that will share its
£3,000 community fund for the second quarter of 2022.
Employees of the building society voted for the following not-for-profit groups:
 Transport for Sick Children = £1,000
 Jump Space = £750
 Bare Necessities Toiletry Bank = £550
 Poynton Pedals for all = £450
 The Garden House Marple Charity = £250
Marie-Anne Eckersall, Communications & Fundraising Co-Ordinator at Transport for
Sick Children, said: “We’re thrilled to be given such a large donation from the Vernon
Building Society Community Stars fund.
“As a small charity covering Greater Manchester this will make a big difference,
allowing us and our volunteer drivers to support more families who are struggling to
attend vital medical appointments for their children.”
What is Community Stars?
Vernon launched its brand new community funding scheme earlier this year to help
local charities and not-for-profit groups across the Stockport borough.
It offers a share of its £12,000 annual fund to Community Stars every quarter,
chosen by its members, colleagues, and the public throughout the year.

Tanasè Rivers, Head of Marketing, Brand and Culture at the Society, added:
“Vernon is committed to supporting the amazing groups, charities and not-for-profits
that help make Stockport the fantastic place it is.
“We are thrilled to provide funding to these five brilliant local organisations through
our Community Stars scheme.
“It’s not too late to nominate your favourite charity or non-for-profit group our next
vote will be at the end September – Show us the causes close to your heart in our
wonderful community.”
