Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Zurich Community Trust has stepped up its support for the HD community in Scotland.
In this past year alone, the organisation has given £29,500 towards our work with families in Glasgow and Lanarkshire.
This continued support comes at a time when SHA, like many charities, has been hit by the cancellation of key fundraising events and activities as a result of pandemic restrictions.
In addition, Zurich Community Trust is also sharing its expertise with partner charities through a series of online workshops and webinars aimed at helping third sector organisations to survive and thrive during these difficult times.
We thank Karen, Black, family member and Zurich employee, who first nominated SHA to Zurich Community Trust in 2017 and inspired work colleagues to volunteer and fundraise for us. We’re also grateful to Stephanie Clark, who is also a family member and Zurich employee, for encouraging staff to support us through raffles and other activities.
Since that first grant of £15,000 over three years for our Financial Wellbeing Service, the relationship with Zurich Community Trust continues to go from strength to strength.
Steve Grimmett, Head of Zurich Community Trust, said: “As part of our COVID-19 Response Plan, we quickly made the decision that we would focus our financial support this year to the existing charity partnerships we had throughout the UK to play our part in supporting charities through such difficult times. As such, we’re pleased to be supporting the excellent work of Scottish Huntington’s Association both financially and through the skills-based non-financial offerings available for our partners.”
