Endorsement

The support that we have received from Ipswich Building Society for our 2015 Bobble Day was fantastic - all of the participating branches really got behind the event and organised their own activities, engaging with the community and their customers. The support of organisations such as Ipswich Building Society is vital in enabling us to continue to support over 22,000 older people in Suffolk. Thankyou!
