Cumberland in the Community

4th January 2018

At The Cumberland, we believe we have a unique role within our local communities where our responsibility extends beyond simply providing our members with great value financial products and services.

Our aim is simple...

To make a genuine difference to our local communities by supporting them in the same way they've supported us for over 165 years. So each year, we donate over £100,000 to a variety of good causes which include local charities, neighbourhood groups, schools and voluntary organisations.

So far this year, our Community Fund has been able to support the fantastic and dedicated work of over 255 local community groups, voluntary organisations, charities and schools by providing funding for specific activities. Including local donations to:


  • Dukes Theatre Lancaster
  • Lancaster Independent Trail
  • Lancaster Homeless Shelter
  • Trinity Church Lancaster
  • Lune Road Bowling Club Lancaster
  • RAIS Lancaster
  • Lancaster Boys & Girls Club
  • Lancaster Jazz Festival
  • Lancaster Sports Hub
  • Lancaster BID
