Supporting Scran Academy with an emergency grant

30th June 2020

Throughout the pandemic, the IICF has continued to support our charities through an industry-wide campaign, IICF UK COVID-19 Crisis: Community Relief Fund, through which more than £100,000 has been raised.

At a time where smaller charities are truly struggling to continue to provide the services they do on a regular basis, the IICF has been able to step in to provide that support.

IICF UK recently virtually presented a £2,500 grant to Scran Academy, made possible by a generous donation by CNA Hardy. Scran Academy has provided more than 71,000 meals to people in Edinburgh and the funds will allow the charity to continue this vital service.

The IICF has already made two previous awards, to St Giles Trust and to Advance.

Charlie Johnson, Youth Development Coordinator, Scran Academy, said: “On behalf of Scran Academy I would like to thank IICF for this money. It genuinely helps us to feed people who are in dire and desperate need.”

“On behalf of IICF, I want to say thank you to all of our supporters for the role they have played in our success to-date. I am proud to have seen the IICF represent the insurance industry as its charitable foundation for the past five years, giving voice to the remarkable and collective good work achieved by companies and individuals in our community. We look forward to going even further in the next five years!” said Wendy Wilder, Executive Director of IICF UK.
