Our customers continue to make hearts beat by opting for paperless policies so we can raise money for life-saving research.
We’ve been raising money for Heart Research UK for more than a decade by donating £1 to the charity each time a new caravan, campervan or motorhome insurance customer opts for their policy documents to be emailed rather than posted.
In 2020, our Paperless Policies campaign raised a record-breaking £20,358 – the most we’ve ever raised in a 12-month period.
Heart Research UK recorded a special thank you video to our staff at Christmas to show their enormous appreciation for our incredible fundraising efforts. The total amount gifted to the charity in the last 11 years is a whopping £131,750.
Even though the Coronavirus pandemic put a stop to many fundraising activities, our kind-hearted staff also took part in the national 2.6 challenge and ran a hamper competition to top up our charity efforts.
Associate Director Laura Wilby said we were delighted to have been able to raise a record-breaking amount of money in what has been such a difficult year for many.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be writing a cheque for more than £20,000 this year for a charity which is very close to our hearts,” said Laura. “Having seen and heard first hand how our money is spent we’re also very grateful to our customers who chose to go paperless so we can pass on this incredible sum of money to help with the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.”
Caravan Guard cares passionately about many local and national charities to help them make a difference to the lives of others and will continue its fundraising efforts in 2021.
Kate Bratt-Farrar, CEO at Heart Research UK, said: “Every year, we are blown away with the generosity shown by Caravan Guard and their customers. A record-breaking fundraising year from them is no surprise, given the passion and dedication that their staff show to supporting our cause, and we were thrilled to be able to show our thanks to the team with a virtual celebration before Christmas.
“In a time when health has never been in sharper focus, research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease is more important than ever. Caravan Guard’s consistent donations help us plan for the future, and we are incredibly grateful for their continued support, which has now has now generated over £131,750 for us to continue our life-saving work.”
