Laura McSorley, a Team leader in the Savings and Retirement Team

Kindness is powerful and life-changing, and we love to see it in action.

That's why we're so proud of Laura McSorley, a Team leader in our Savings and Retirement Team. From the boot of her car, she set-up the Kindness Homeless Street Team, to help feed homeless people in Glasgow.

This week she found out she's the winner of the Woman of the Year Kindness Award, judged and presented by Lorraine Kelly.

Laura said: “I am absolutely over the moon to have won Lorraine Kelly's Woman of the Year Award. This came as a huge shock and welcome surprise. I feel so fortunate and proud.”

Laura began her #charity work in October 2019 and began to offer a nightly service of hot food, clothing, toiletries and hot drinks from March 2020 to further help homeless people when COVID hit.
Her charity now offers a Foodbank service six days per week, soup kitchen three evenings per week, and furnish homes every day.

Congratulations again Laura! We’re so pleased to see that your hard work, care and commitment has been recognised with this award.
