Higos Pledge to Support the Somerset Cricket Foundation!
At Higos, we want to go the extra step for everyone that supports us. That's why we've pledged to donate to the Somerset Cricket Foundation every time a new policy is taken out with us! We will donate £25 for personal insurance policies, and £50 or 50% of the policy's insurer commission for commercial insurance policies.
Higos' Managing Director, Matthew Hartigan said: “We are proud to be associated with the Somerset Cricket Foundation, knowing that our donations for each insurance policy taken out will support and grow grassroots cricket and enrich the lives of people across the region.”
Caroline Herbert, SCCC's Commercial Director added: “This is an outstanding initiative which further demonstrates the commitment Higos has to both the region and to supporting the recreational game. We are so incredibly proud to be associated with an organisation that is attempting to make a genuine, positive and long-lasting difference to the local community. This is a wonderful development in our partnership.”
