Support for worthy causes

With people and the community being at the heart of Cura, it only feels right that we do what we can to support them. Each month we donate or help out with a chosen charity or event, and quite often we manage to sneak an extra one in here and there!

12 Days of Christmas – Day 10, Support for worthy causes

We are incredibly happy to be doing a Reverse Advent Calendar to raise funds for Saint Catherines Hospice this Christmas. Every day during advent we are donating an item to the hospice, the patients and their families. We are also collecting donations to give to their local stores. It’s been wonderful to see the support from the local community.

Since this time last year we have donated to 14 different charities or fundraisers, starting with one very close to the heart of managing director Kathryn, with her also being an ambassador for the charity. To bring a little bit of joy and excitement to the end of a rather sad year for many, in 2020 Kathryn organised an event, Christmas Party for Parkinsons. 

This was attended by many people, having purchased a paid for ticket with funds going towards Parkinsons UK. During this virtual event there were quizzes, competitions and raffle prizes, and Kathryn managed to raise a whopping £4000. 

This meant so much to her as her dad was diagnosed with Parkinsons in his early 50s. A couple of months before the party he had deep brain stimulation surgery. This procedure is incredible and it is through donations to Parkinsons U.K. that research into these types of treatments is available.

After December, we then went on to donate to a number of other charities, in support of a variety of events.

2021 Run Down

Though giving to charity is great, we know it’s not all about that. As a business, we also have corporate social responsibility to take on board.

We aim to make as much of our services as accessible as possible, and we have a number of things in place in aid of that. An example of this is Recite Me, a software installed on our website which allows users to access our services more easily.

As we are mainly a telephone based broker, much of our communication is done over the phone or by email, but there are times where a client may require paper documents to be sent to them. In order to reduce our carbon footprint, many years ago we became as paperless as possible, only using it when completely necessary. But we also appreciate that not all of our clients may have access to emails or the internet, and they might need things on paper. Plus some insurers still use paper documents and we can’t always avoid it!

As well as using as little paper as we can, we also

  • Pay for life insurance for our employees, to make sure that their families are financially secure if they pass away whilst working for us.
  • Pay for income protection for our team, so that if they fall ill, they will receive rehabilitation support as well as money to maintain their standard of living.
  • Support charities by providing them with video and blog materials to support their members that want insurance.
  • Provide access to mental health support, nutritional and exercise advice programmes.
  • Encourage serious consideration of pension planning and enhanced contributions.
  • We engage with local recruitment agencies and offer apprenticeships to help young people into work.

We are thrilled to be in a position to be able to help others, and we try to do our bit wherever and whenever we can. Our aim for 2022 is to continue supporting as many people and charities as we can, and we have a few exciting things up our sleeves which our whole team and community can get involved in too!
