We’re delighted to say The Cumberland Building Society will be supporting our FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland service at their AGM this summer! For every member vote they receive, they’ll donate £1.

The donations will be split between our service and FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria.

The Cumberland AGM will be held on July 21 and eligible members will be able to vote.

Phillip Ward, brand manager at The Cumberland, said: “Our priority is to keep our customers and our team safe, so we’re encouraging people not to attend our AGM in person this year. However, we very much want our members to vote, and they’ll be able to do this online or by post as soon as they receive their voting documentation.”

“Thanks to our link-up with FareShare, they will be making a difference to the lives of many people who are struggling right now.”

“Eligible members will be receiving a letter from us soon which includes information on how to vote.”

Members can usually cast their votes at branches but this year because of the coronavirus restrictions, The Cumberland is only accepting votes online and by post.

This support will make a massive difference during lockdown and beyond, as we work harder than ever to keep up with increased demand for emergency food.

You can find more information about the vote on The Cumberland website.
