Saffron Building Society is running its members' month up until the end of June, and has already held a number of activities, events and promotions.

Celebrations kicked off at Saffron Walden Town Football Club with a five-a-side football match between Saffron Building Society employees and Saffron Walden Town FC players.

The match featured a 6ft round football to demonstrate the building society's intention to 'go BIG on the little things' in a bid to reward, celebrate and thank its members.

Other activities and events throughout the month include the BIG branch roadshow, where members can come to their local building society branch and talk to Saffron CEO Colin Field.

A member-exclusive tea party took place at Down Hall Hotel on June 19, featuring special guest and rugby legend Martin Bayfield.

There is also a prize draw taking place every day of the month, as well as 150 chances to write a simple single will for free, or £150 towards a mirror will or trust with Co-op Legal Services.

Colin Field, Saffron Building Society CEO, said: "We are an organisation built for and by its membership and we believe it is essential that we recognise that.


"We feel now is the perfect time to hold our first members’ month to give something back and reward our members for their loyalty."

While June marks the building society's first Members' Month event, the building society has said they are "committed to making promises to its members throughout the year", including financial wellbeing reviews and help for younger people to start saving.

Saffron Building Society has eight branches across the East of England, including Bishop’s Stortford, Brentwood, Colchester, Halstead, Haverhill, Royston, Saffron Walden, and Ware - and members are more than welcome to visit their local branch to discover how Members Month can benefit them.

The BIG Branch Roadshow at the Saffron Walden branch is taking place on Friday, June 23.

The final stop on the roadshow is in Brentwood on Monday, June 26.
