Unite against Dementia for the Insurance Day of Giving!

IUAD_2019_Citynet_web

 

Insurance Day of Giving” gets Citynet Insurance Brokers involved once again in the fight against Dementia.

We have had a tremendous day at Citynet HQ, raising funds for the Insurance Day of Giving 2019’.

Almost half of the 300,000 people working in the UK insurance sector will be affected by dementia either directly or through a loved one. Despite this, a great deal of stigma still remains. By bringing dementia into the conversation, we can raise vital awareness and show colleagues that they don’t have to face dementia alone.

Last year, the Day of Giving raised an incredible £70,000 for research into the cause, care, cure, and prevention of dementia. This year the goal is £100,000.

This campaign, meant to help people affected, is part of the Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD) and has now the backing of more than 50 insurance firms. As an Alzheimer’s Society initiative, this event is aiming to raise £10 million in the next five years to help fund their world-leading research to improve care and ultimately find a cure against this cruel disease, empowering people affected to live the lives they want.

In the spirit of collaboration, Citynet and PIB Group have united for the second year to raise funds with every employee committed to helping spread awareness of what dementia is, as well as where you or your insurance colleagues can find support if affected by this killer disease.

We are extremely glad to announce that Citynet’s together with PIB Group companies have raised a total of £10,000 for this years IUAD.

One Industry. One goal! Let’s all unite to take on the 21st century’s biggest killer!

#MacmillanCoffeeMorning at Citynet HQ

#MacmillanCoffeeMorning

 

The #MacmillanCoffeeMorning has become a ‘tradition’ that started almost 30 years ago, in 1990.

Initially, it was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It proved to be very effective and since the Macmillan Coffee Morning event has become a yearly ‘tradition’ raising over £200 million.

Last year alone, this event has raised an incredible £26,914,382 towards this great cause.

On the 27th September 2019, people all over the country took part in an activity that was tasty, fun and also helped raise funds and awareness for a truly worthy cause.

Cancer can be devastating news for anyone. With one in two of us facing this ‘enemy’ at some point in our lives, the money raised at the #MacmillanCoffeeMorning event throughout the UK will help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.

Here at Citynet Insurance Brokers, all our staff got involved again in the world’s biggest #MacmillanCoffeeMorning.

Each and every one of us has made a special effort by baking, buying and bringing in the most delicious treats. As a result, we are very proud to announce that the Citynet Insurance Brokers team has raised a total of £592.74 that will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Well done everyone and what a team effort!

Let’s change lives with every slice!

Citynet’s second year of success at City v Wharf 5k run!

City-v-Wharf-5k-RUN-Web

 

The City v Wharf Challenge is an annual 5k run where London’s two major business districts (and a who’s who of the financial and professional services sector) go head-to-head in a flat, fast 5k run in Victoria Park

In our second year in attendance, Citynet run under the PIB Group team consisted of 25 runners.

The sun was very much shining on us (and it was pretty warm by the time the starter gun went off at 6pm) but the heat didn’t deter our runners. There were some fantastic achievements across the board. A special mention goes to Will Offer (PIB Employee Benefits), Callum Wallace (Cobra London Markets) and Alex Broggio (Citynet Insurance Brokers) who achieved great race times.

In addition to the gruelling training, the team also aimed to raise money for Insurance United Against Dementia and the total has exceeded £400 so far.

You can view the Justgiving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/citywharf19-pib.

Full results can be viewed here (search PIB to view ours): https://thefixevents.com/the-cityvwharf-5k-run-challenge

The team consisted of athletes from Citynet Insurance Brokers, PIB Group, PIB Insurance Brokers, PIB Employee Benefits, Cobra London Markets, and Q Underwriting.

Citynet “Six in the City” tackle #walkthenight marathon challenge!

“Six in the City” #walkthenight marathon challenge!

A team of girls from Citynet Insurance Brokers tackled the #walkthenight marathon (26.2 miles) on 27th July 2019. The team was made up of Mandy PalinJan BettEmily RenewClare O’NeillChloe Taylor and unfortunately Laura Hellens had to drop out a couple of days before due to illness (even though she had joined in with all the training). With months of preparation and daily walks behind them, they finally did it and it only took 8.5 hours and 66,700 steps to claim that victory.

They found the #walkthenight challenging and had some hair raising moments along the way witnessing some of London’s unique night-time antics, but with each other support, they got there in the end.

The ladies took on the challenge to raise funds for their two chosen charities, Prostate Cancer and CoppaFeel (Breast Cancer). If you would still like to donate to their causes here is their just giving link.

“Your support meant a lot to us and we could not have done it without you,” said Mandy Palin from Citynet.

Here at Citynet, we are all very proud of our girls and huge congrats are going their way.

Until next year!
