Ludlow Announce Agency Giving Fund Donation

Ludlow Agency is delighted to have nominated local charity Hands Together Ludlow, to receive a donation of £3,164 from a national £1m ‘Agency Giving Fund’ launched by NFU Mutual.

In light of the national emergency this country is facing, NFU Mutual, the UK’s leading rural insurer, has allocated £1m to help local frontline charities at this difficult time. 

To help ensure this support reaches all corners of the UK, NFU Mutual has reached out to its Appointed Representative Network of local Agents.  Consisting of circa 300 independent Agency businesses and 9 NFU Mutual Branches, each have been given the opportunity to nominate a handful of local charities to receive a share of this fund.

Locally, we have nominated Hands Together Ludlow to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.

This donation will allow Hands Together Ludlow to continue to deliver emergency support to vulnerable people around Ludlow, whether they want shopping delivered or just a reassuring chat.

“I am writing to thank the NFU Mutual Ludlow for your kind donation to Hands Together Ludlow.

We are so busy delivering emergency support to vulnerable people around Ludlow. Our helpline is connecting callers to appropriate volunteers, whether they want shopping delivered or just a reassuring chat. Over 1100 requests have been resolved so far. We are also delivering nourishing meals to the vulnerable and signposting those with longer term problems in to appropriate provision.

Hands Together Ludlow have the right infrastructure in place to support this work, but the volume in this emergency situation is beyond anything we could ever have planned for. That is why your donation is so important to us. It will directly help pay for staffing and support for the most vulnerable at this desperately worrying time.”

The NFU Mutual’s £1m emergency fund for local charities across the UK, forms part of an overall £32m support package NFU Mutual has committed for the benefit of customers and communities affected by the coronavirus.  To find out about NFU Mutual’s coronavirus support package, please visit: https://www.nfumutual.co.uk/about-us/coronavirus/
