Preston Announce Agency Giving Fund

The Preston & Blackburn Agency is proud to have nominated local charity Derian House Children’s Hospice, to receive a donation of £6451 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 Preston & Blackburn Agency nominated Derian House to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.

This donation has allowed the Derian House to offer their services to the many children and families across the North West of England. NFU’s donation will go a huge way in allowing them to continue to help their families in their many times of need. During the COVID-19 pandemic they have lost an estimated £500,000 due to the cancellation of events and fundraisers so such a generous donation is hugely appreciated by everyone at the 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
