Howden-owned broker Aston Lark, which recently opened a new base in South Wales, has announced that it has kickstarted support for a cancer charity.

Through support from Ecclesiastical Insurance, Aston Lark has donated £1,000 to Sir Gareth Edwards Cancer Charity, established by the rugby legend of the same name. The charity provides support for young people aged 15 to 35 who live in Wales, are receiving treatment for cancer, and are struggling financially.

Ecclesiastical awarded the donation on behalf of the broker at a recent pop-up event in Cardiff. Part of the Benefact Group, Ecclesiastical is the insurance arm of an international family of financial services that donate available profits to good causes.

Aston Lark development executive Deborah Barber – a recent addition to the company – commented on its support for the charity, saying: “Between the ages of 15 and 35 are when many are thinking about starting a career and a family, but few are thinking about the financial impact of a devastating illness such as cancer. For those that don’t have adequate insurance policies in place if they become ill with an illness like cancer, the support of the Sir Gareth Edwards Cancer Charity is absolutely invaluable.”
