Whitfield Announce Agency Giving Fund Donation

The Whitfield Agency is proud to have nominated local charity Family Food Bank 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 Whitfield Agency nominated Fareshare Kent and Family Food Bank to receive this support, to help deliver their important work delivering support to families in financial difficulties in Kent.

This donation has allowed the Family Food Bank to continue to provide support to families throughout Kent, distributing food to the most vulnerable in Kent. During the pandemic, the charity distributed over 1200 tonnes of surplus food and 12,000 food boxes to those in need.

“Fareshare Kent and the Family Foodbank are delighted to have the generous support of NFU Mutual in funding the work that we do throughout Kent. It is support like yours that will help us to continue to meet this increased demand over the next year." Emma White, Warehouse Manager, Fareshare Kent and The Family Foodbank.

NFU Mutual’s £2million 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.
