Highlights from BHIB Charity Events for 2019
Last year was a fantastic year for our charity work and support. During 2019, BHIB Insurance Brokers supported four different charities – spending the year working with:
- Leicester Animal Aid (local to our Leicester office)
- The Lewis Foundation (local to our Northampton office)
- Porchlight (local to our London office)
- Meningitis Research Foundation (national)
Find out more about each of these great charities and the events we held for them below:
Leicester Animal Aid is a rescue and rehoming centre. Every year they care for more than 500 dogs and cats who are lost, abandoned, neglected, unwanted or relinquished because their owners are no longer there for them.
The Lewis Foundation is a family-run charity that provides thousands of free gift packs every year to cancer patients in hospital. This was so patients could have items they loved without having to worry about paying for them.
Working across Kent and the South East, Porchlight help vulnerable and isolated people get support with their mental health, housing, education and employment across all ages.
The UK and Ireland’s leading charity in the field of meningitis research. MRF brings together people and expertise to defeat meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists.
Charity events held by BHIB in 2019
Our offices participated in two successful collection drives, one for Leicester Animal Aid which consisted of toy, pet food and cleaning supplies for the shelter. The second was for The Lewis Foundation, where we donated various items to put into gift bags for the patients.
We held a number of Bake Sales over the year (as everyone loves a few sweet and savoury treats in the office!) and we held various themed raffles throughout Easter, Halloween and Christmas. We were overwhelmed with the amount of donated prizes from staff members and local businesses. A big thank you to Leicester Marriott Hotel and Experience Day for your recent prize donations!
Overall, we have had a great year supporting such wonderful charities, it has been a pleasure working with them. We look forward to welcoming our new Charities of the Year for 2020!
