Why we sponsor The Love Barrow Awards
Furness Building Society is sponsoring the Citizen of the Year award because as a mutual financial institution that exists for the benefit of its members, we understand the importance of individual dedication and commitment for the wider good and well-being. It is part of our business ethic to work for the good of the communities in which we are based and which we serve; we are therefore proud to honour outstanding citizens based in our hometown of Barrow-in-Furness.
