Skipton Building Society

Let it never be said that Skipton Building Society doesn't remember its roots. Still based in the heart of the town in the Yorkshire Dales, they employ over 1,600 staff in their headquarters, and that't not even including the branches all over the country. Est. since 1853, they are winners of multiple Investors in People Awards, and are proud to support a range of local community projects. 

Beth Parsons talked to Becca Hanson and Stacey Stothard from Skipton Building Society about their town, the Forget Me Not Ball and their involvement with Stray FM's Best Of Skipton and Beyond Awards.
