News Release: Pavey Groups Donate Do Good Day a Huge Success

Posted by on November 1st 2016 in General News

Pavey Group’s ‘Donate & Do Good Day’ for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) was a resounding success.

The day was held in Exeter on Tuesday 25 October and the idea was, as many busy professionals don’t have time to take their unwanted items to charity shops, Pavey Group would visit the businesses to pick up the collections instead!

Whilst members of the team spent the morning collecting charity shop donations from businesses in the area, the rest of the team worked as volunteers at CHSW’s Sidwell Street shop in Exeter helping to sort through the collections and help out with general shop duties.

Posted by on August 5th 2016 in Featured, Insurance

It’s every landlord’s nightmare; your tenants have vacated the property and before doing so, left you with potentially thousands of pounds worth of damage. The windows are smashed, the doors and walls full of holes, they’ve even taken your furniture – what now?

Posted by on February 11th 2016 in Featured, Insurance

We are all more reliant on technology. This increase in reliance creates new risks and potential liabilities for businesses which traditional insurance policies are insufficient to provide cover for.

Insurance that protects you in the event of a cyber-attack may seem like something only a large corporate organisation would require. However, cyber criminals are non-discriminative, using malicious codes across the internet to search for vulnerabilities, with the potential to attack business of any size, anywhere in the world.

These criminal activities commonly referred to as ‘cyber-crime’ can not only result in significant financial losses but also significant interruption to a business. So...
