Higos Insurance Services is delighted to support Ups and Downs Southwest, who have been chosen as the Higos Charity of the Year for 2017.
Ups and Downs Southwest is a parent led charity, based in Somerset, who provide information, advice and support for children with Down Syndrome to parents, carers, families and professionals throughout the South West region. The charity aims to enable children with Down Syndrome to enjoy happy, healthy and fulfilling lives in which they can reach their full potential.
Emily Wright of the Higos Community Fund commented “We are delighted to support Ups and Downs Southwest and the incredible work they do across the South West. Our donation of £1,000 has come from two sources; the first £870 of the donation has come from an auction of hampers which staff members created to raise funds for Ups and Downs and £130 has come directly from the Higos Community Fund. We look forward to working with Ups and Downs throughout 2017.”
Michelle Sugg from Ups and Downs Southwest commented “We are delighted that Higos Insurance Services Ltd has chosen us as their Charity of the Year 2017. This partnership will have a huge impact for the organisation, allowing us to continue supporting families who have a child with Down Syndrome. We have already received a great response from employees willing to fundraise and volunteer for us and we are overwhelmed by this initial donation.”
