Darlington Building Society invites members to its AGM at Preston Park Museum

Darlington Building Society is inviting members to celebrate the success of its 160th anniversary year pledges and find out more about the commitment to share 5% of net profits after tax with the local community at its 2017 Annual General Meeting.

To be held at Preston Park Museum and Grounds on 25th April 2017 members will have the opportunity to walk down the Victorian Street and view the exhibits before the main business of the AGM.

This year staff have nominated three charities to be beneficiaries of the Annual General Meeting: Teesdale and Weardale Mountain Rescue, Trinity Holistic Centre, Darlington Town Mission.

Colin Fyfe, Chief Executive of Darlington Building Society, said: “We want as many eligible members of the Society as possible to attend our AGM and have their say in how their Society is run.

“The venue this year is particularly interesting. The Victorian Street is a fascinating snapshot of a former era and I know that members will enjoy looking around.

“Last year was very special for Darlington Building Society as we celebrated our 160thanniversary and I am very much looking forward to updating members on the success of our pledges and detailing just a small number of the charities, projects and organisations supported.

“We won’t be resting on our laurels and this year we will be sharing 5% of our net profits after tax with the communities we work in; I am looking forward to sharing more information about this with our members. All in all it’s going to be a great evening and I am looking forward to meeting many of our members.”
