celebrating 160 years

Celebrating 160 years
2016 is a milestone year for Darlington Building Society as we turn 160 years old. We are hugely proud to be one of the few remaining independent regional building societies in the UK.

As we are based in the North-East we are keen for our staff, members and local community to share in that pride as we celebrate this historic year.

Our commitment to our members and the communities they live and work in remains as important to us as it was  160 years ago and to demonstrate that we are making three pledges that will show how we plan to play our part in making a real difference.

Firstly, we plan to raise £160,000 for local causes through a variety of activities and events that we will be running throughout the year. We will give 160 volunteering days to help local organisations by using our time and skills.

Finally, we aim to help 160 local organisations by using our resources to help them, whether that means a local business or charity using our branches to raise awareness of their activities or our van to help take things from A to B and everything in between.

Watch out got our activities throughout the year - it is sure to be one to remember.
