NFU Mutual Honley partner with The Welcome Centre.
In light of the national emergency this country faced back in March 2020, NFU Mutual was allocated a £1m national fund to support local frontline charities. The fund was open to nominations from local branches to support charities within their communities who were supporting people during the pandemic.
Matthew Gummerson, one of the Partners at NFU Mutual Honley, made the nomination and The Welcome Centre was delighted to receive £1,582 from the fund back in June 2020. This year, NFU Honley have partnered with The Welcome Centre for the coming year and have made a further donation to the foodbank of £1,451.62.
Matthew Gummerson, one of the Partners at NFU Mutual said
NFU Mutual have been proud champions of rural communities the length and breadth of the UK for over 100 years, supporting local causes is part of what we do day to day. In 2020, we recognised the vital need for support by local frontline charities in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic. We set up the Agency Giving Fund, which was a £1 million initiative to help our local communities across the UK deal with the unfolding situation and increase their resilience for the future. In response to the ongoing challenges faced by communities across the UK, we’ve announced a further £2 million to the national Agency Giving Fund for 2021. As a local business in the Huddersfield area we are aware of the vital work carried out The Welcome Centre and are pleased to support them once again in 2021.
