Meet Our Sponsors: Canada Life

Tell us more about Canada Life – What do you do and how long have you been operating in Bristol?

Canada Life has been operating in the United Kingdom since 1903. Proud to be the No 1 provider of Group Insurance in the UK, Canada Life has been based in Bristol since 2002.  We look after the protection needs of employers and their employees, offering three employer funded products: life insurance for employees; financial support if an employee is absent from work due to illness or injury; a tax-free lump sum payment if an employee is diagnosed with a critical illness condition.

Why did you want to sponsor the St Peter’s Hospice Midnight Walk 2017?

Although our products offer financial benefits, our proposition and support goes beyond this with the support services we offer employers and employees at the time they are needed most.  

This sponsorship offers us an ideal opportunity to align our business with the care provided by St Peter’s Hospice. Over a number of years we have participated in the annual quiz, ad hoc events and St Peter’sHospice was our local charity of the year in 2015.

What do you hope your support of the Midnight Walk will achieve?

We want to recognise the excellent work that the Hospice does in Bristol and the surrounding area, which they can only achieve through donations and sponsorships, and play an active part in supporting their fund raising activities.  

As Bristol based organisations, we have a shared goal to provide support for individuals and their families at  a time when it is needed most.

5/10 miles through the night is a fairly big challenge, what advice would you give to the women taking part?

Don’t forget to warm up! Team up with others! Dig out your 80s gear! But most of all enjoy the walk!  And if the going gets tough on the way round, think about what the money you are raising will achieve.
