Questor is very much committed to investing in young people's futures in the workplace, the local community and on a worldwide scale. As a team we deliver a whole host of charity support in the form of staff fundraising events and an online donation facility for our customers to donate into an annual charity fund.
Andrew Lawrence, CEO at Questor Insurance says: ‘We need to invest today for tomorrow, and I am very passionate about providing young people with opportunities that without a third party support may not be possible. I am proud of Questor’s commitment and am excited to see the outcomes in the years ahead’.
In 2013 we started a charitable fund and invited our customers to donate £1.00 when they purchased a policy from us. We have been overwhelmed by the responses and generosity of our customers that have allowed us to donate nearly £4,000 since 2013.
This year we are hoping 2017 will be bigger and better in terms of our donations. Our chosen 3 charities are:
Kent Air Ambulance
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust is an independent charitable healthcare provider working with the Ambulance Service. They are not part of the NHS and are funded almost entirely by voluntary donations. Operating two helicopters, they provide a 24-hour, Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and can reach any part of Kent, Surrey and Sussex within 20 minutes.
Their two crews each consist of 1 pilot and at least 1 doctor and 1 paramedic who are trained in advanced pre-hospital care. Specialist clinical procedures, normally only available in A&E, can be delivered to the patient at the scene. They can then take patients quickly and directly by land or air to the most appropriate hospital, best able to treat their injuries.
