NFU Mutual Hemel Hempstead is delighted to have nominated local charity DENS, to receive a donation of £3,164 from a national £1m ‘Agency Giving Fund’ launched by NFU Mutual.
In light of the national emergency this country is facing, NFU Mutual, the UK’s leading rural insurer, has allocated £1m to help local frontline charities at this difficult time.
To help ensure this support reaches all corners of the UK, NFU Mutual has reached out to its Appointed Representative Network of local Agents. Consisting of circa 300 independent Agency businesses and 9 NFU Mutual Branches, each have been given the opportunity to nominate a handful of local charities to receive a share of this fund.
The Hemel Hempstead branch has nominated DENS to receive over £3,000 of financial support, to help deliver their important work.
Fran Martin, DENS Head of Fundraising and Communications, said: “We are extremely thankful to NFU Mutual Hemel Hempstead for nominating our charity to receive a donation from the NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund. We are experiencing an unprecedented rise in the demand for food parcels in our Foodbank, and our priority remains to meet these high demands ensuring no one goes hungry during this pandemic. Sadly, our Events Programme is cancelled for the foreseeable future so this generous donation will go a long way to help make up the shortfall we are facing.”
Tony Fields, Senior Partner NFU Mutual, said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on everybody, including our customers and their local communities.
“DENS is making a wonderful difference to our community in these challenging times, and we are proud to have been able to nominate this local charity to benefit from NFU Mutual’s national fund.”
The NFU Mutual’s £1m emergency fund for local charities across the UK, forms part of an overall £32m support package NFU Mutual has committed for the benefit of customers and communities affected by the coronavirus.
Congratulations to Tony and his team for their continued great work in the community.
