The Derby office of a national specialist insurance brokers has pledged to raise money for local charity Safe and Sound over the next two years.

PIB Insurance Brokers in Wyvern Business Park choose a different charity to support every two years and organise a diverse fundraising programme ranging from physical challenges to dress down days.

Branch director Neil Howie explained: “Although we are part of a national group, we are committed to supporting the communities where our staff, clients and contacts are based.

“All the team nominated charities and it then went to the vote with resounding support for Safe and Sound.

“Having heard more about the issue around child exploitation, I am delighted that we will have the opportunity to raise money that will make a real difference to so many young people and their families in our local communities.

“Choosing a nominated charity gives everyone the focus for what they want to do individually or as part of the team and we have some great activities in the pipeline.”

Safe and Sound CEO Tracy Harrison added: “As well as raising much needed funds, I always welcome the opportunity to build relationships with companies and organisations to raise awareness of child exploitation.

“This enables staff, in turn, to share information with their own family, friends and contacts which is vital to keeping young people safe from grooming and exploitation both in person and online.

“The PIB team were very receptive to learning more about the work we do and several have expressed interest in volunteering for us which is great news.”
