Savers can now make a guaranteed 2% while supporting cancer charity Marie Curie.

Leeds Building Society has launched an 18 month fixed-rate savings bond in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The account pays a rate of 2.00% gross p.a./ AER, fixed for 18 months, and customers will help Marie Curie with 0.1% of the closing balances being donated to the charity.

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society Sales and Marketing Director, said: “This account has been specifically designed to offer customers a competitive return on their savings, whilst donating 0.1% of the closing balance to Marie Curie Cancer Care to support the charity.

“It doesn’t cost the customer a thing and the more customers save, the more Marie Curie receives.

“This product will pay a guaranteed fixed rate of 2.00% gross p.a./ AER for 18 months, combined with a minimum opening and operating balance of just £100.”

‘Affinity savings products’ are those that allow savers to give money to charitable causes whilst saving.

Customers can open an account with a £100 deposit, by going to a branch, online or by post.
