According to Sport England, one in four people do less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week. London gym Jubilee Hall is helping to remove some of the barriers to exercise, and recently refurbished its gym with the help of a Charity Bank loan.
More than 160,000 people in London don’t have a home. The rates in Newham are particularly stark, with one in 24 people classed as homeless. First Fruit is working to change that, one person at a time.
Your eligible deposits with Charity Bank are currently protected up to a maximum of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), the UK's deposit guarantee scheme. Total balances above £85,000 are not protected.
For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000).
Deposits from large companies and small local authorities are covered by the FSCS deposit protection from 30 January 2017 up to a maximum of £85,000.
Visit the FSCS website for more information or call the FSCS on 0800 678 1100 or 0207 741 4100.
