Wow! What a fantastic 12 months we had working with FORCE. With the help of our colleagues across our 4 offices, we have fundraised a brilliant £9,009. This year we very much wanted to be as ‘hands on’ as possible, and with the support of our colleagues, we had volunteers at all of FORCE’S largest events including teams of participants, totalling a massive 200+ hours of time given over the course of the year.

Business Interruption Insurance is a non-compulsory form of insurance that is intended to protect businesses against the financial loss suffered as the result of a claim.
