The Yorkshire Coast Agency is delighted to have nominated local charity The Rainbow Centre, to receive a donation of £3,164.00 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 The Rainbow Centre receive this support, to help deliver their important work.
Trish Kinsella, Centre Manager said “The need is great and not just for food but for utilities, beds and furniture, white goods that are breaking right left and centre with no one around to either repair or help renew and lots of other things that we take for granted. Children need to have access to food that is fresh and to be able to have a meal that is cooked well in an oven that is not dangerous or not working at all. We have spent thousands on numerous practical basic items, utilities and food. Your donation will enable us to continue offering support so that families have beds to sleep in and food to cook on equipment that is functional.
The money will give us the opportunity to continue to support the many who are newly in need after losing work and often accommodation. It is a hard time for so many at the moment with no real end in sight yet so your generosity will help them to make new starts and to not lose hope.”
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.
