Signpost are delighted to have been supported by Vernon Building Society in their Community Awards, two years running.
In 2020, 66 groups and organisations applied for a share in the Community Awards, and Vernon’s Community Panel carefully considered each before deciding on the shortlist.
The 14 finalists, including Signpost, were opened up to the public for nominations, with the not-for profit and community groups sharing Vernon’s £10,000 awards pot, based on the number of votes they received. Marketing and brand manager at Vernon, Alexander Deakin, said:
This is a fantastic list of well-deserving groups, all of which benefit the local community. It’s been an especially difficult year for charities with fundraising efforts hampered by the pandemic, so we are thrilled to support these local organisations.
We were delighted to be finalists and received £600 in 2020 and £750 in 2019.
Thank you to Vernon Building Society and everyone who voted for us!
