Friday the 17th of August marks National Blood Bike Awareness Day and to share its gratitude to the blood transporting heroes, One Broker is donating £1000 to two local charities.
The £1000 donation was raised by One Broker staff and the business while fundraising for 2018’s Run Norwich event. Nine runners volunteered from One Broker’s Cambridge and Norwich offices to complete the 10k race, heralded as one of Norfolk’s most popular sporting events.
One Broker has been a keen supporter of local blood bike organisations, SERV Norfolk and SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire (S&C), since June last year and has now raised a total of £3400 for the charities. Both SERV Norfolk and SERV S&C complete fantastic work across East Anglia, transporting blood, blood products and even breast milk between hospitals during hours when NHS funded transport is unavailable. This saves the hospital trusts serving local communities thousands of pounds on courier fees, meaning resources can be more effectively spent on frontline care.
Rob Rowley, Account Executive of One Broker’s independent ambulance scheme, KTIB Ambulance, commented "Up and down the country people are celebrating the brilliant work carried out by Blood Bikers. In the middle of the night, these men and women leave their beds to travel miles on their motorbikes with vital, often life saving medical supplies. One Broker is saying its thank you to two of our local Blood Bike groups by donating £500 to each charity".

The One Broker group’s Broking Team, consisting of staff from Gibbs Denley Insurance Services, One Broker (Cambridge) Ltd, One Broker (Norwich) Ltd and One Broker (South) Ltd, has grown from strength to strength in the last year. The diverse team of broking professionals, consisting of Broking Technicians, Broking Executives, Account Executives and Directors, has never been stronger thanks to a surge of recruitment amid ever-increasing demand for One Broker’s services.
From humble beginnings as small independent companies, Gibbs Denley Insurance Services, KTIB, NWBIB and PJW joined forces to create One Broker, listed by Insurance Age as the UK’s 37th largest independent commercial insurance broker in the UK. While joining the One Broker group, each entity brought with it a loyal band of staff, many of whom had been with the companies for a number of years. Since this, One Broker has gone on to recruit several talented, hardworking broking professionals who work tirelessly to serve their clients.
One Broker now boasts a Broking Team of over 65 individuals, spread throughout offices in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Working in partnership with clients, listening to their individual insurance requirements, One Broker’s broking staff negotiate with insurers on their client’s behalf. As regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, this provides reassurance that the broking professionals will provide the most suitable advice, working in the best interests of their clients.
Speaking of the strengthening of One Broker’s Broking Team, Group Broking Director, Sean Clark commented "It is great to see our Broking Team develop and go onwards and upwards. Over the years our staff have built very strong relationships with our clients and it is fantastic to see that continue".
To speak to a member of our Broking team today, call 01223 792290 for our Cambridge and 01603 760511 for our Norwich offices.

Nine runners from One Broker completed an amazing physical and mental feat last weekend, smashing Run Norwich’s ten kilometre route. The team of runners from across the One Broker group, (including Gibbs Denley Insurance Services) completed the race to fundraise for One Broker’s Charity of the Year, Blood Bikes.
Runners, including Adam, Adele, Ashley, Danny, Gina, Linsey, Steph, Tom and Vince, made One Broker proud by volunteering for the run and finishing the route with flying colours. Snaking around Norwich City Centre, the Run Norwich circuit led runners past cheering crowds, including supporters from One Broker. Speaking of the event, Claims Technician, Gina Hunt, said "I wouldn’t say that it was easy getting round the course, especially at the half way mark and the incline up Rose Lane! But I had a great time and the atmosphere was amazing so I’m really glad I took part".
One Broker entered a team into the race in support of Blood Bikes, a charity which provides a free, volunteer- run blood transport service to the NHS. The money raised by One Broker’s Run Norwich efforts will be split equally between local organisations SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire and SERV Norfolk.
It’s not too late to donate! One Broker’s Just Giving page is still open for fundraising. Please donate what you can to show your support by visiting: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/onebroker.
