Local Insurer’s support for Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) & Gatehouse Bury St Edmunds helps keep vital services going for the community

NFU Mutual Agents and their staff at the Bury St Edmunds Agency recently nominated local charities Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) & Gatehouse Bury St Edmunds, to receive a donation from NFU Mutual’s national £1.92million ‘Agency Giving Fund’.

The leading rural insurer has launched this fund, now in its fourth year, to help local frontline charities across the country. The Agency Giving Fund forms part of NFU Mutual’s £3.25m funding pledge for both local and national charities in 2023, to assist with recovery from the pandemic and to help tackle the impact of the rising cost of living.

To ensure these donations reach all corners of the UK and are directed where they’re needed most, all NFU Mutual Agencies, with more than 295 offices nationwide, have been given the opportunity to nominate local charities to receive a share of the fund.

This donation has enabled Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) to continue providing advanced medical resources to the most serious medical incidents across Suffolk. SARS does not receive any central government funding and therefore relies on donations such as this generous contribution to ensure we are able to respond to those most in need. SARS clinicians volunteer their time to bring pre-hospital emergency medicine to the scene, saving lives, providing pain relief and improving patient outcomes.

Kim Turner, Fundraising Coordinater, Suffolk Accident Rescue Service, commented: e.g. “We’re so grateful to the Bury St Edmunds Agency of NFU Mutual for nominating our charity to receive a donation from the NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund. Longstanding Partnerships with local businesses and organisations is essential for SARS to continue and grow.

David Blackwell, Senior Agent at NFU Mutual Bury St Edmunds agency “We’re extremely proud to support S.A.R.S for this donation, they do fantastic work assisting the emergency services and greatly improve the chances of survival when accidents happen in the local rural area, we have known them to often be the 1st responders to farm accidents.
