Meopham Announce Agency Giving Fund

Sevenoaks & Meopham Agency is proud to have nominated local charity West Kent Mind, 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 Sevenoaks & Meopham Agency nominated West Kent Mind to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.

"We are so very grateful to NFU Mutual for their generous donation of £6,451.62. This will go a long way in support of our work, helping people who are experiencing mental ill health to get well, stay well and thrive. This year many more people in our community have found their mental health has deteriorated and they have turned to us for support. We rely on support from our local community to respond to this need. Donations like this really do enable us to reach those who need us most, be that through our affordable counselling service or one of our many support groups. Thank you for making a difference". - Kate Barnes, Fundraising Manager West Kent Mind.

NFU Mutual’s £2 million 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.
