Winston’s Wish, the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK, is delighted to announce a brand new partnership with insurance distributor ViiSana. The initial partnership will be a three year agreement, running through until February 2019.
ViiSana exclusively offers award-winning health and life insurance from Vitality, which offers discounts and rewards that help customers get healthier, and save money at the same time. .
The company selected Winston’s Wish as their chosen charity for the next three years, starting with a £5 donation being made for every case that they sell which uses their internal support service team.
Both ViiSana and Winston’s Wish understand the significance of providing support during illness and bereavement. The insurance that ViiSana provides ensures financial help and their affiliation with Winston’s Wish highlights the importance of emotional support during difficult times.
Based in Shoreham, ViiSana is a life, protection and health insurance distributor. Despite being a relatively new company, the business is fast growing and has plans to expand the business further. Managing Director Paul Ollerton understands the long-term emotional effect of childhood bereavement, having had close personal experience of his own at any early age.
Paul Ollerton, Managing Director at ViiSana said:
“Everyone in the team at ViiSana is delighted that we are now proud partners of such a worthy cause. We were looking to do something through our business efforts that makes a difference within the community, so when we heard about Winston’s Wish and the wonderful work they do, it was an obvious choice to make. We are committed and passionate about making Winston’s Wish and their mission part of our everyday conversation with customers and we look forward to contributing in every way we can.”
Fergus Crow, CEO of Winston’s Wish, added:
“We’re delighted that ViiSana have chosen us as their partnered charity and are so grateful for their support and efforts. They recognise the importance of timely therapeutic support for bereaved families, even when financial support is in place. We can’t wait to embark on this partnership together.”
