Local independent insurance broker, One Broker is proud to announce that the Papworth Trust has been selected as its official Charity of the Year.
The disability charity, which supports people across East Anglia, has been working with WeLoveLettings, One Broker’s tenants and landlord insurance scheme, for a number of years. 2019 will see One Broker’s support of the charity ramp up with more fundraising activities planned.
Alongside One Broker’s company sponsorship, staff members will also be getting their hands dirty to raise money for the Papworth Trust. Employees will be donating their time to redesign the Trust’s garden at their Cambridge Centre, while two intrepid staff members will be taking on the London Marathon to raise donations.
Last year the Papworth Trust celebrated its 100th birthday. Originally established by Dr Pendrill Varrier-Jones as the Cambridgeshire Tuberculosis Colony, the charity eventually extended to include a wider range of disabled people. Today, the Papworth Trust looks to support individuals in various locations throughout East Anglia through housing and employment support, plus care and day services.
Speaking of the announcement of the Papworth Trust as One Broker’s Charity of the Year, Cambridge One Broker Director, Shaun Lenton commented, “We are mightily pleased to announce our full corporate support behind the Papworth Trust. So far we have raised over £3000 for the charity through our WeLoveLettings scheme. We look forwards to raising even more for the Papworth Trust through the fundraisers and volunteering we have planned for 2019” .
