SEIB Giving 2019 winners
SEIB granted a total of £100,000 to charity at the second SEIB Insurance Brokers Charity Awards luncheon at the Grange City Hotel, London on the 22nd March. Our Chief Executive Officer, Barry Fehler presented a cheque for £50,000 and a commemorative plaque to Roly Owers and Emma Williams of the winning charity, World Horse Welfare.
Nine other charities reached the final voting stage of the SEIB Charity Awards and received a further £50,000 from us between them.
SEIB’s customers had the final say and voted for these projects. The winning project for World Horse Welfare was for Vital New Equipment, including a new tractor and trailer and a drone with a hi-res camera to help locate horses in need of help in hard to reach locations.
Barry Fehler said: “We are delighted that our customers have decided which of these very worthy causes should receive the grant. Each of the charities that reached the final judging had important projects that would really make a difference to the areas within which they operate and that was our aim when we set up this initiative”.
Redwings Horse Sanctuary took the runner-up grant of £15,000 for their Horse Hospital Treatment Room project and the smallest charity of the finalists.
Welsh Pony Rescue and Rehoming Charitable Trust took £10,000 for third place back to South Wales for their Every Life is Precious project.
In fourth place was the Animal Health Trust, who were awarded a grant of £5,000 for the Digital X-Ray Appeal which could help diagnose new orthopaedic conditions.
Manchester based, Once Upon a Smile, received the SEIB Small Charity Award. This resulted in a grant of £10,000 for their project, Help Bereaved Families Rebuild Their Lives. Once Upon a Smile offers financial support and respite breaks to bereaved families.
The other finalist charities, each receiving a grant of £2,000 each are; Bransby Horses Rescue and Welfare, Lindsey Lodge Hospice, James Hopkins Trust, Wildlife Aid Foundation and the South Essex Wildlife Hospital.
