A-Plan Insurance is celebrating a new partnership with ‘We Love Lichfield’, a local community fund that provides small grants to a wide range of voluntary projects based in Lichfield District. A-Plan’s Lichfield branch in Bore Street have agreed to donate £25 every time someone takes out a car, van or home policy and mentions ‘We Love Lichfield’.
Laura Maritza (Branch Manager) said: “We are really proud to be supporting We Love Lichfield and the excellent work they do locally. The team and I are looking forward to getting involved with activities throughout 2020 and beyond.”
Laura continued: “We like to be where people can access us easily and where we have an opportunity to engage with local people, businesses and charities. This allows us to really become part of the community. Lichfield is a great location for A-Plan and on a personal level I feel proud to play a part in the area’s vibrant economy. We are here to provide a personalised service, designed to help our clients find the protection they need.”
Simon Price, CEO of Arthur Price and Patron of We Love Lichfield, said: “Thank you A-Plan twice. Firstly, for agreeing to donate £25 for each car, van or home policy bought. Secondly, to have a national company supporting a small but growing fund like ours, shows that our work is recognised as making a real difference. It gives us all a boost to raise even more money to help the local community.”
We Love Lichfield provides small grants twice a year to a wide range of projects based in Lichfield District. Companies and individuals can donate, or fund raise and all money is invested through a permanent endowment fund by registered charity The Community Foundation For Staffordshire in line with charity commission guidelines. The interest and dividends earned is then distributed by the Fund as small grants across the district twice a year. The beauty of this model is that it will provide a source of on-going funding for many years to come. The aim is by 2023 to have created enough capital to give away £50K every year for ever.
