Skipton International has been shortlisted for a 2020 Community Award for its CSR programme within the Bailiwick.
The Guernsey bank is one of three finalists being considered for the Community Award at an evening which will celebrate those businesses, groups and individuals who work tirelessly for the benefit of others.
The Community Social Responsibility Award will reward the commercial company which has had the greatest positive effect on the local community through its partnership with a charitable organisation and its voluntary and community projects.
2020 has seen Skipton increase its charitable work, supporting the Skipton Swimarathon through a record-breaking year and providing staff voluntary work and financial donations through its Skipton Community Fund. New for 2020 was the Skipton Cup, which brought people together through the power of sport.
Jim Coupe, Managing Director of Skipton International, said: “This shortlisting completes a hat-trick of nominations received by Skipton this year, having been selected by the Leaders in Wellbeing Awards, Investors in People and now the Community Awards - all for our CSR programme.
"We are incredibly proud of our team’s efforts, working with us to have the greatest positive impact we possibly can and proving that a little can go a very long way.”
The winner of the award will be named at the prize giving ceremony on 17 November at St James and will receive a cash prize of £2,000 to be donated to a charity of the winner’s choosing.
