“I’m delighted that Aviva is once again taking part in the Insurance Day of Giving,” said Phil Bayles, chief distribution officer at Aviva. “Last year we raised £7,250 thanks to the brokers who used our Fast Trade platform. This year we’re doubling our efforts – quite literally – and hoping to raise £15,000 for the Day of Giving through our Fast Trade platform and fundraising activities across the Aviva offices.
“Dementia devastates families – my own included. On November 07, we can all play a vital role in supporting research that will bring us new treatments for the condition. I can’t wait to see the industry step up and show how much it cares about the causes that matter so much to its people.”
