Leisure insurance specialists Caravan Guard, who have been partnered with Heart Research UK for many years, raised over £20,000 for Heart Research UK in 2020 – a new record for the partnership.
Caravan Guard has been raising money for Heart Research UK for more than a decade by donating £1 to the charity each time a new caravan, campervan or motorhome insurance customer opts for their policy documents to be emailed rather than posted.
In 2020, its “Paperless Policies” campaign raised a record breaking £20,358 – the most it’s ever raised in a 12-month period. In the same year, the Halifax-based company also celebrated insuring more than 105,000 customers.
Heart Research UK recorded a special thank you video to staff at Christmas to show their enormous appreciation for the incredible fundraising efforts of Caravan Guard. The total amount gifted to the charity in the last 11 years is a whopping £131,750.
Even though the Coronavirus pandemic put a stop to many fundraising activities, Caravan Guard staff also took part in the national 2.6 challenge and ran a hamper competition to top up their charity efforts.
Laura Wilby, Associate Director of Caravan Guard, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be writing a cheque for more than £20,000 this year for a charity which is very close to our hearts.
“Having seen and heard first-hand how our money is spent, we’re also very grateful to our customers who chose to go paperless so we can pass on this incredible sum of money to help with the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.”
