Leicestershire charities receive donation from building society

esbs, or Earl Shilton Building Society, has announced the results of its online In the Community scheme for the third quarter of 2023.  Through voting on the esbs website, two local charities receive a share of £500 each quarter.

Toys on the Table and the Shuttlewood-Clarke Foundation are the latest charities to receive a donation from esbs, benefiting from £298.15 and £201.85 respectively.

The final charities participating in the scheme this year are Adapt and Lamp.

Adapt is a small charity who provides support to families with premature and poorly babies on the neonatal units at Leicester Royal Infirmary and Leicester General Hospital. Adapt funds family support workers who visit the Neonatal Units in both hospitals and provide ongoing care after families have gone home. They rely solely on donations to continue to support families of premature babies.

Lamp is a Community Mental Health Advocacy charity supporting adults in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, and has done so since 1989. Lamp’s advocates work with people to make sure they know their rights, their views are heard and listened to, they get the right diagnosis and treatment, and they can take control of their life. They rely upon the generosity of volunteers and donors to continue providing this life changing service.

Paul Tilley, Chief Executive of esbs, said: “We are very pleased to be able to continuously support Leicestershire charities through our In the Community scheme, and delighted that so many people enjoy participating in the voting process.”

Voting for quarter four of In the Community ends on 31st December 2023. Place your vote at https://www.esbs.co.uk/charity-token-collector/.
