Pocklington Agency is delighted to have nominated local charity, Pocklington Rugby in the Community, to receive a donation of over £3,000 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 Pocklington Rugby in the Community to receive this support, to help deliver their important work.
This donation will allow them to support vulnerable members of our community by assisting the local food banks in Pocklington, Holme on Spalding Moor and Market Weighton and the residual funds will be used to assist Pocklington Rugby In The Community in preparing a permanent home for the People's Pantry at the rugby club
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.
