The Scarborough based Yorkshire Coast Agency is proud to have nominated local charity Westway Open Arms 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 Yorkshire Coast Agency nominated Westway Open Arms to receive this support, to help continue deliver their important work in providing a school lunch provision during school holidays. Located minutes from the Agency office Westway Open Arms is a Christian social action centre at the heart of Eastfield. With this funding they have been able to extend this vital provision beyond the summer holidays to include both the Easter and half term holidays as well. In addition to the food provided, the charity has also been able to include activity packs.
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.
