I ended the day at Yorkshire Bank's 150th Anniversary Dinner...

It was great to spend the evening with some fabulous colleagues from Education Leeds, schools in Leeds and colleagues from the business and voluntary sectors. I had been asked to attend the dinner at Nostell Priory near Wakefield to talk about the contribution Yorkshire Bank is making to education and to announce the education category of their £150,000 initiative in four key areas:
  • environment;
  • volunteering;
  • regeneration;
  • education.
The education award will go to a project that promotes financial education. In each category the winning project will receive £10,000 with four runners up each receiving £5,000. A further twenty awards of £1,000 will also be made. Entries have to be submitted by 16th August and the winning charities, community groups or schools will be announced in November. The overall winning project will receive a further £10,000. You can find out more at the Yorkshire Bank website at www.ybonline.co.uk.
