Staff at NFU Mutual in Alton have nominated the Petersfield-based Rosemary Foundation to receive a donation of more than £6,000 from its national £1.92 million agency giving fund.

Rosemary Foundation fundraiser Wendy Smith said: “We’re so grateful to the Alton agency of NFU Mutual for nominating our charity to receive a donation from the agency giving fund.

“The money has gone a long way to helping us offer palliative care in East Hampshire.”

Richard Buer, senior partner at Alton NFU Mutual Agency, said: “We’re extremely proud to have nominated the Rosemary Foundation for this donation and are delighted to be able to support the vital contribution they make to our community.

"NFU Mutual’s agency giving fund was created in 2020 in response to the pandemic, and this ongoing support is helping change lives.”
