Aberystwyth Agency is proud to have nominated local charity League of Friends of Bronglais Hospital, to receive a donation of £6451.62 from the national £2 million ‘NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund’.
In light of the national emergency our country is continuing to face, NFU Mutual has allocated a £2million fund help local frontline charities during 2021. This follows £1million of support delivered by NFU Mutual’s Agency Giving Fund in 2020, which helped charities across many sectors to keep their life-changing services going throughout the pandemic.
To ensure these donations reach all corners of the UK and are directed where they’re needed most, NFU Mutual’s Agents, with over 300 offices nationwide, have been given the opportunity to nominate local charities to receive a share of the fund. The funds will offer support as lockdown measures continue to impact our communities, providing both emergency support and to help build long-term resilience.
The Aberystwyth Agency nominated League of Friends of Bronglais Hospital to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.
This donation has restored the League of Friends' ability to meet a greater number of requests for funding from Bronglais General Hospital, from district nurses and from community health workers. During the pandemic the League itself has been unable to generate income by holding coffee mornings and charity lunches; we have had to rely on annual subscriptions, gifts and memorial donations to build up our funds.
NFU Mutual’s £2million Agency Giving Fund forms part of a series of initiatives NFU Mutual has committed for the benefit of customers and communities affected by coronavirus. To find out more, please visit our Coronavirus Information Hub.
