Forfar Announce Agency Giving Fund Donation

NFU Mutual Forfar supports Voluntary Action Angus to help local relief efforts

NFU Mutual Agents Jeremy Parker and Rob Beaty and their team at the local Forfar agency are delighted to have nominated Voluntary Action Angus to receive a donation of more than £3,000 from a national £1m "Agency Giving Fund" launched by the Head Office of NFU Mutual Insurance as part of its package of measures in support of communities impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Voluntary Action Angus has nearly 1200 volunteers who are currently helping people by delivering shopping, prescriptions and essential telephone befriending services to vulnerable members of the community. More recently, they have also been working with local businesses to help people to get domestic appliances, such as cookers and fridges, where their old ones had broken down.

Jeremy Parker, Agent at NFU Mutual Forfar, said: "We are proud to support the frontline work of Voluntary Action Angus, who have done an incredible job in their response to the Coronavirus pandemic and are making a wonderful difference to our community."

Hayley Mearns, Deputy CEO of Voluntary Action Angus, said: "We are very grateful for this support from NFU Mutual which gives us valuable funding to help carry out our important work across all communities in Angus.

 "All these things are really important to people during the current situation and it's great to see such large-scale kindness prevailing in Angus, of which the NFU Mutual funding is an essential part."
