Skipton Building Society Skipton Building Society has a number of Branches in the local area. All the Skipton Branches have been hugely supportive of our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society. The Branches raised over £1,500 for the Alzheimer’s Society but more valuable than the money raised is the Branches’ commitment to support the Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends initiative.
