The cheque was presented to the Trust by Director, Phil Thorpe, representing NWBIB Ltd in Cambridge who are part of the One Broker Group. Handing over the donation in the glorious garden in the Cambridge Centre, he said: "It is a very proud moment in our history to be supporting a charity that does such amazing work in the local area, right on the door step of our office". The funds were raised by the company’s WeLoveTenants scheme, with £1 being donated to Papworth for every new policy that was bought online.
Founded 100 years ago in Cambridge as a centre to manage tuberculosis, the Papworth Trust has worked continuously with disabled individuals, supporting thousands of people, their families, and carers over the years. Offering a range of activities, including everything from cooking and cake decorating, to film making and song writing, the Trust’s Cambridge Centre on Hawthorne Way offers a retreat of fun and entertainment to people with physical, learning or sensory disabilities.
Jo Revitt, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser at Papworth Trust, said: "We are very grateful to everyone connected with One Broker for this very kind and generous way of supporting disabled people living in their community."
