So if you’re a supporter of the club, and you require either personal or business insurance, then using County Insurance means you’ll get excellent rates and insurance cover PLUS you’re sports club receive a donation.

Case Study

Ribble Farm Fare, based in Longridge, Lancashire, is a family run business specialising in fruit and vegetables. Roger and Richard Coulston successfully run the business, along with their fully committed management team and 90 strong workforce.

Both brothers have supported Preston Grasshoppers RFC and were fully aware of the “Club Connect” scheme. Having met Alastair Christopherson several times, they were happy to give County Insurance the opportunity to quote for their business insurance, which was a sizable Commercial Combined insurance policy, including a fleet of vehicles.

Ribble Farm Fare were delighted with the outcome of the quotation. The premium itself was very competitive, saving the business thousands of pounds, plus the level of cover was actually better than they had previously. Ribble were also pleased with the level of service and attention to detail County provided throughout the process. RFF General Manager, Marina Goodman, handled the review process professionally allowing County Insurance to provide the best possible terms.

However, the real icing on the cake was the fact that County Insurance made a generous and much needed donation to the Rugby Club that RFF have supported over the years. Richard Coulston comments “A ‘win win’ scenario can often be an overused term, but in this instance I really think Ribble Farm Fare and Preston Grasshoppers are smiling. We have saved money on our insurance that we can invest into other areas of the business, whilst our level of cover and customer service has improved. The fact that the club that we are passionate about, PGRFC, also get a donation is excellent. We have met Alastair from County Insurance there several times, and the fact that he is also a lifelong Hoppers fan is a massive bonus. Club Connect also pays donations each year when you renew, so I can’t see at this stage why we would go anywhere else for our personal or business insurance requirements”
