Andy Caton, corporate development director at Yorkshire Building Society, said: “Our fundamental aim is to help more people meet their aspirations of buying their own property and doing it in a sustainable way which supports our members and communities.

“Awards like these show we are reaching our goals in the right way and it makes us very proud to know our peers respect our achievements.”
