Last month Autoline Insurance Group launched a yearlong series of fundraising initiatives and customer reward promotions to celebrate their milestone fortieth year in business. The independent broker, headquartered in Newry with branches across Northern Ireland invited charities from all different sectors to receive £1,000 each from the 40th anniversary charity fund.
With an overwhelming response Mencap’s Big Step Forward Appeal has been selected at random as one of those to benefit. Their Appeal will equip, build and run a new Children and Families Centre for children with learning, physical and sensory disabilities giving them the best possible future in life.
Michael Blaney, Managing Director for Autoline said, “We are delighted to announce that Mencap has been selected as one of the charities to benefit from the fund. Staff from Autoline branches will be doing a range of fundraising initiatives in the months ahead and will hope that customers and suppliers will join in to help support charities such as Mencap.
Vanessa Elder, Mencap’s Regional Fundraising Manager said, “We are delighted to have been selected as one of Autoline’s 40th Anniversary Fund charities. We hope that our supporters will get behind this inspiring campaign to help Autoline reach their target to help Mencap and the other 39 beneficiaries.”
Michael Blaney added, “We will also be offering a host of prize giveaways for customers through our Facebook and Twitter pages with tickets for concerts, major sporting events and hotel breaks up for grabs. 2015 is set to be one of our most ambitious years yet with a focus on supporting the communities in which we operate as well as continuing to offer competitively priced insurance and excellent customer service in the personal lines and commercial insurance market in Northern Ireland.
