Today we’re launching our new fundraising initiative with SpecialEffect.
We first came to hear about SpecialEffect in 2014 at business meeting. In the corner of the room was a banner about SpecialEffect. This got us talking about the charity and the Twin Town Challenge.
Following this meeting FOCUS began supporting SpecialEffect in 2015 in the run up to the Twin Town Challenge 2016 event, which we became a main sponsor of as well as participating as a team in our dear old farmyard Porsche.
Since then, we’ve expanded our support for SpecialEffect by taking part in events, sponsorship, donations, volunteers and provided insurance for Twin Town Challenge as well as becoming Twin Town Challenge participants in 2016, 2018 and again for the final time in 2020.
2020 sees us kicking off a new and innovative way of supporting SpecialEffect – by donating 20% of earnings from new insurance policies taken out by SpecialEffect friends, families, supports and connections.
Quite simply, if you mention SpecialEffect when you call FOCUS for a new insurance policy, then it will have an immediate positive impact for the charity.
Managing Director, Nick Jones, explains:
I wanted to find an alternative way of supporting SpecialEffect and this seemed like a great opportunity for our new clients (SpecialEffect supporters) and us to give back and help the charity. From now on, new customers quoting ‘SpecialEffect’ will pay exactly the same as they’d have paid anyway but the money that FOCUS donates from their policy will help SpecialEffect improve the lives of more disabled people.
The policies taken out can be for either personal or business insurance solutions, such as home and motor insurance, life insurance, commercial insurances, Directors & Officers liability, motor fleet, cyber insurance etc.
