One Broker Makes Donation to Papworth Trust During Coronavirus Lockdown

We’re proud to reveal that we donated more than £2,000 to a local charity’s Covid-19 campaign this month, thanks to our teams’ efforts to raise much-needed funds.

We appointed the Papworth Trust as our charity of the year in the middle of 2019, supporting the Trust’s efforts to assist disabled people living in Cambridgeshire. It provides vital services including care, housing and employment skills to individuals within the local community.

Since the appointment of the charity of the year, we have engaged in a range of creative fundraising activities, from holding fortnightly inter-team quizzes to installing snack fridges in our kitchens. There have also been cake sales, races and challenges, which have boosted donations. However, we decided to make an early donation this month, before the end of the financial year, in response to the current coronavirus pandemic.

Group Managing Director Sean Clark said: "At One Broker, we’re committed to giving something back to the communities in which we work. In recent weeks, it became evident that Papworth Trust needed our support now more than ever – and I’m pleased to say that by donating the funds we’ve raised so far, we could provide assistance at a critical time."

Jo Revitt, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser added: "We cannot thank One Broker group enough for this amazingly generous donation to our Covid-19 appeal. Maintaining support, learning and development for our clients is essential during this time, as is visual contact – albeit remotely – which is enabling us to reduce the feelings of isolation that many of them are currently encountering. These funds will support our appeal to provide technology and data for those who don’t have it, and activity packs focusing on independent living skills, so that we can cook, garden and get involved in arts and crafts during our remote sessions together."
