Skipton Building Society is opening its doors to those who want to make donations to help the victims of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack.

People can now donate money in any of the Society’s branches across the UK and by calling the Society’s Skipton Direct team.

The Red Cross Manchester Emergency Appeal was launched by the Manchester Evening News to help support the families of those killed and injured in the aftermath of the attack.

To make it easier for people to send funds to this emergency appeal, people can donate their money over the counter at any Skipton branch or they can call Skipton Direct on 0345 850 1722.

Stacey Stothard, senior corporate communications manager at Skipton, said: “Words cannot express how shocked the nation has been following this attack. We have branches in and around the Manchester area – and cannot begin to imagine what people are going through. In addition to donating money ourselves, we want to help make it a bit easier for anyone else wishing to support this appeal to donate money too.

“With a network of over 100 branches across the UK, simply go to your nearest Skipton Building Society and you can donate money to the Red Cross Manchester Emergency Fund over the counter. Alternatively people can call our Skipton Direct team on 0345 850 1722 and donate over the phone.”

All money will be sent to the Manchester Evening News Just Giving appeal:
