On 8 March 2017, the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, delivered his first Spring Budget. His plan is to ‘prepare Britain for a brighter future’ and that ‘we are building the foundations of a stronger, fairer, more global Britain’.
The Bank of England voted to keep its base rate at an historic low of 0.25% on 02 February 2017, despite expectations of rising inflation and slower wage growth squeezing household budgets and spending this year.
This year is a massive milestone for Sheffield Mutual Friendly Society and Support Dogs, as they join in celebration for their 125th and 25th birthdays respectively. Sheffield Mutual has been in collaboration with Support Dogs for over 4 years, donating over £25,000 via various schemes and staff fundraising.
