SEIB started in business as South Essex Insurance Brokers in 1963 and will turn 60 next year. The company plans to celebrate this milestone by giving £60,600 to good causes at the sixth annual running of the SEIB Awards in July 2023. In recent years, through SEIB Giving, the broker has helped the causes that mean the most to their loyal clients to the tune of 250,000.
SEIB Giving will see one winning charity receive a grant of £15,060 at the 2023 SEIB Awards, a small charity with a turnover of under £100,000 will receive £12,060 and the remaining £33,480 will go to eight runners-up. All winning charities and not-for-profit organisations will be nominated by the general public and then voted for by customers of SEIB. The donations will be presented at the SEIB Awards which will be held in the summer of 2023.
The public are invited to put their nominations forward for their favourite charities. Nominations are now open and will close at 5pm on January 16. Once a shortlist of charities has been drawn up, SEIB clients will have the final vote. The winning charity and runners up will be announced at the 2023 SEIB Awards luncheon.
SEIB Chief Executive Officer Suzy Middleton explained: “Our business has grown and changed so much over the past 60 years, yet our values of putting something back along with our goal of providing an unsurpassed service remain at the heart of what we do. Particularly during these economically challenging times I am delighted that we are able to get much needed funds to the causes that really matter to our loyal customers. It only takes a moment to nominate a favourite charity and these funds will make a difference to some of those that are really struggling.”
Always known for ‘putting something back’, SEIB is a commercial business with a charitable purpose. The company insures numerous charities and not for profit organisations. SEIB is an independent broker, but is ultimately owned by a charity.
No charity is too small to be in the running for SEIB Giving 2023 and the SEIB Yard of the Year awards, but turnover for charities or not-for-profit organisations nominated for SEIB Giving is capped at £10m. All charities and not-for-profit organisations will need to be registered, have a year of published accounts and operate in the UK.
From supporting grass roots competition that gives opportunities to amateur riders that they could only otherwise dream about, right through to the company’s support of good causes, SEIB’s ethos is one of constant support and providing opportunity.
