Thornbury Agency is proud to have nominated local charity, ‘Made A Mark’, to receive a donation of £6451.62 from the national £2million ‘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 Thornbury Agency nominated Made A Mark to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.
“This donation has allowed Made A Mark to fund the contents of 268 memory boxes to help bereaved families in their time of need. Thornbury is an incredibly sociable town with a real family element to it, and this donation provides an important element in the community for a charity that is doing fantastic work. Fundraising has been very difficult during 2020, some events were able to go ahead but others had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. This incredible amount of money donated by NFU Mutual is just fantastic” (Alistair, Made a Mark Charity).
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.
