A Glasgow foundation has been given a funding boost.

Glasgow Care Foundation, a charity aiding impoverished individuals with essential household items and food vouchers, received a £1,500 donation from Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

The Glasgow-based charity was nominated by colleagues from the city's branch of the Yorkshire Building Society.

The charity, active since 1874, is committed to alleviating poverty within Glasgow.

Through referrals from agencies aiding vulnerable individuals, the foundation offers vital items such as flooring, beds, and white goods.

Over the past year, 901 applications for assistance were approved, benefitting 2,671 people.

Pauline Moore, customer consultant at Yorkshire Building Society in Glasgow, expressed her pride in the donation.

She said: "For 150 years Glasgow Care Foundation has helped to support some of the most vulnerable families and individuals in our community, so we are proud to be able to support the charity with a donation from Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

"The work that Glasgow Care Foundation does to support vulnerable people in Glasgow has an important impact on the lives of thousands of people in the area."

Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation's funding stems from the Small Change Big Difference® scheme, where account holders donate annual interest pennies to smaller UK charities.

Last year, donations surpassed £283,000 for local causes and charities nominated by members and colleagues nationwide.
