There when you need us

For many of our customers in Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire, December 2015 was a traumatic and emotional time as they wrestled with the devastation caused by extreme flooding.

A total of 69 churches we insure were badly affected by bad weather and floodwater caused by Storms Eva, Desmond and Frank.

Here, we focus on the effects of the floods for just a few of these claims, and show how our specialist church insurance knowledge and understanding of our customers’ needs allowed us to get these churches up and running again as quickly as possible.

The full stories have been featured in the January and May editions of ChurchTimes.
