Following tradition, staff at County Insurance recently took part in a charity day to raise money for the RNLI.
On Friday 31st of January, all staff donated cash to wear their nautical coloured clothing and “sailor style” outfits to work. There were also cakes on sale throughout the day and a raffle which helped to bump up the total money raised.
The day was kindly organised by John Lawson, one of County’s longest serving employees who is also the RNLI’s Congleton branch Chairman.

The RNLI is an excellent charity committed to saving lives at sea. The organisation relies purely on their 40,000 volunteers on lifeboats, at stations, on beaches and in fund raising to be able to provide this crucial service. County Insurance have supported the charity by carrying out similar fund raising events for several years now.
Current owner and manager, Dave Clapp commented: “Once again we are extremely proud to support such a fantastic cause. Thanks to all staff who took part for their generous donations and commitment.”
Further funds were raised with a cake sale (Thanks to John and his wife Sandra!)
