Insurance Broker donates
over £1000 to Pier campaign (article posted 05/08/2011)
An insurance scheme for local residents and businesses in Hastings, offered by insurance firm Chris Knott Insurance, has raised its first £1000 for the pier campaign.
Whenever a customer calls for a quote and mentions Hastings Pier, the broker donates 25% of its earnings on the resulting policy to the Hastings Pier & White Rock Trust.
Neil Franklin, Managing Director of Chris Knott Insurance, said “We’re so pleased to have broken the £1000 barrier but we won’t rest there. As long as people keep calling for quotes and mentioning the pier we’ll keep sharing our earnings”.
Ray Chapman, Chairman of the
Hastings Pier & White Rock
Trust, was pleased with the first donation. He said “Chris Knott’s support is much appreciated. This is a great way to help the restoration and people should give Chris Knott a try when their renewals fall due”.
In addition, Directors and staff held a Dress-Down Day last Friday to raise funds for the Trust. The company matched the amount raised by individuals and this added an extra £100 to the coffers.
