Employees from SEIB Insurance Brokers and WRS Insurance Brokers recently donated £6,000 to a local charity of their choice.

We're delighted to announce, we have recently donated £6,000 to Chelmsford-based charity, Farleigh Hospice.

Farleigh Hospice is a registered charity, providing hospice care to people affected by life-limiting illnesses across mid-Essex. The hospice also provides support for families and carers, and for people who have been bereaved.

Chief Operating Officer at SEIB, Bipin Thaker said: “SEIB and WRS have supported various small charities over the past few years and it is satisfying to see the difference our donations make to the work done by these charities. It is always inspiring to see the dedication of the volunteers and the outcomes that they achieve for those they are helping.”

Alongside the charitable donation, teams from both SEIB and WRS Insurance Brokers rolled up their sleeves to help volunteer at Farleigh Hospice. Duties included a range of gardening services, from painting benches and mowing the garden areas to sweeping and general tidying – ensuring the outdoor space was fit for patients and families to enjoy during the summer months.

Debbie de Boltz, Farleigh Hospice’s Fundraising Manager, added, “Thank you to SEIB and WRS for supporting Farleigh Hospice. The fantastic donation of £6,000 will help us to continue

providing free award-winning hospice care to local people affected by life-limiting illnesses and bereavement. Our patients really appreciate the work that the volunteers put into making the hospice gardens an enjoyable place to spend some peaceful moments, to watch and be close to nature.“
