Ilminster Announce Agency Giving Fund

Ilminster Agency is proud to have nominated local charity St Margaret’s Hospice Care to receive a donation of £6,451.62 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 Ilminster Agency nominated St Margaret’s Hospice Care to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.

This donation has allowed the St Margaret’s Hospice Care to continue to provide a high level of care to their patients during this difficult time.  Many of their usual fund-raising activities have been curtailed by lockdown and as such, this donation is much needed.

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.
