Higos supports Family Counselling TrustWednesday 22nd November 2017

Higos Insurance Services was delighted to sponsor a table at the Family Counselling Trust’s (FCT) fundraising dinner to support their work with local families.  
 
On Saturday 11 November, the FCT held a fundraising dinner at The Swan Hotel in Wells to help meet the cost of providing counselling to more children and families in Somerset. 
 
Higos was pleased to sponsor one of the tables at the event which was a great success. Staff from Higos Charity Committee also got involved by helping drive raffle ticket sales on behalf of the FCT.
 
The charity offers a grant-supported counselling service for children, adolescents and families with emotional, behavioural or other mental health problems.
 
Andrew Tanner from Higos Charity Committee said “To be able to help a charity which covers our regions fits perfectly in our model. It is the type of charity we strive to help and hopefully make a small difference in people’s lives.”
 
The Family Counselling Trust’s services are accessible to all in the Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset areas however focus is given to low income families. 
 
Angus Crutchfield, Chair of the FCT Somerset, contacted Higos after the fundraising dinner and said “I write to thank Higos for your absolutely fabulous efforts in selling raffle tickets and sponsoring a table at our fundraising dinner at The Swan Hotel on Saturday evening. We raised £4000 in total and this enables us to welcome more referrals of children who would, sadly, otherwise not receive a timely service.”
