H&H Insurance announces partnership with Carlisle rugby club

By becoming an affiliated corporate partner of Carlisle RFC, the insurance broker has also committed to ‘financially support the club on a yearly basis’

H&H Insurance Brokers (HHIB), which operates throughout the North of England, Scottish Borders and Wales, has announced a partnership with Carlisle Rugby Club in a deal which will help benefit the club every time a supporter takes out a policy with the company.

In addition to recently becoming an affiliated corporate partner of the rugby club, HHIB, whose main headquarters are situated within Harrison and Hetherington Borderway Auction Mart in Carlisle, has added to its portfolio the Carlisle RFC – affinity account which will see a percentage of revenue earned by the firm go directly to the club.

By becoming an affiliated corporate partner of Carlisle RFC, the insurance broker has also committed to “financially support the club on a yearly basis”.

Paul Graham, the managing director of HHIB, said: “We are delighted to become an affiliated corporate partner of Carlisle Rugby Club and to offer our support to such a great local sports club.

“By introducing the Carlisle RFC – Affinity Account in addition to the partnership deal, we feel this is our way of giving that little bit extra back to the community.”

He added: “Basically, the more fans and supporters – or even those who aren’t necessarily fans but want to support their local club – that bring their insurance to us, the more income we will be passing on to the club.

“We know the club has some big plans and wants to expand and grow, and we want to help out in every way possible.”

Carlisle’s fundraising and partnerships manager, Barry Earl, added: “We are always on the lookout for commercial partners, and we were delighted to see Paul Graham’s enthusiasm to help when we met.

“Having this incentive will hopefully encourage more of our supporters and members to deal with HHIB as every policy taken out will help the club towards our funding goals to refurbish the clubhouse or invest in training equipment to improve performance on the field at all levels throughout the club.”
