Leading Stoke-on-Trent Insurance Company, Cover and Legal, becomes Long-Term SOS Africa Charity Corporate Sponsor
22 Nov 2016
As part of this ambitious new fundraising partnership, the company has already provided funding for the construction of an aftercare building from which a new education programme and special needs workshop will be launched in January 2017. Supplemented by the funds raised at SOS Africa’s recent Frome Firewalk Fundraising Event, the new centre will ensure that both children with the greatest potential and those likely to otherwise fall through the education system, receive a holistic education in a safe and friendly environment.
Furthermore, Group CEO of Cover and Legal, Jay Mychalkiw has agreed to become the charity’s first Corporate Ambassador, to encourage additional investment to help further expand the charity’s education programmes in South Africa:
“Giving something back to worthwhile causes is something which is completely interwoven into our business culture. We are delighted to be able to share this story in the hope that other businesses get on board with the project as, once the aftercare building has been completed, there will be an urgent requirement for further fundraising.”
“SOS Africa is a fantastic charity that really does make a difference to people’s lives, providing an immediate but very sustainable and measurable improvement in these children’s futures. We are delighted to provide this funding to SOS Africa where 100% of the donation will go to the project and enable SOS Africa to expand its scope of support to empower even more children through education within the region.”
Co-founder of SOS Africa, Matt Crowcombe commented:
“The sponsorship provided by Jay and his team at Cover and Legal will enable us to provide essential education and care to significant numbers of underprivileged children from the local township communities. Thanks to this support we can help these children break the cycle of poverty and fulfil their potential. This sponsorship will create a lasting legacy of empowerment through education.”
“We cannot wait to welcome Jay and his team to the new education centre and meet the programme’s many beneficiaries early next year. We are also very excited about the new partnership which has been forged between Cover and Legal and SOS Africa and the positive impact it will have upon South Africa’s future generations.”
