Ellipse's charity initiative 'You quote, we donate' has chosen its three charities for the remainder of 2014.
Each time an adviser obtains a quote from Ellipse's online service a donation will be made to one of the charities.
A donation of £1 will be made to one of the three charities, which charity will be decided by the adviser immediately after completing each online quote.
The charities were selected by Ellipse staff from suggestions from advisers. The three are:
- Reuben's Retreat which offers a countryside retreat for families and their close friends who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
- Queen Elizabeth's Foundation which works with people with physical and learning disabilities and acquired brain injuries to help them gain new skills and increase independence for life.
- The Motor Neurone Disease Association which funds both research into the condition, and provides information and support for those with Mmotor neurone disease.
John Ritchie, CEO of Ellipse, commented: "We are delighted to be lending our support to these three charities, and with how advisers have engaged with us in setting up ‘You quote, we donate'.
"Those of us in the group risk sector may be working for commercial organisations, but it's important to remember that our fundamental purpose is to provide help to individuals and families at times when they really need it."
