Working In Partnership

Temperance Fund

 

Supporting children’s financial literacy

The Society has a long history of promoting temperance and membership was originally restricted to those who had signed a pledge to abstain completely from alcohol. Whilst today our products are available to everyone our charitable temperance fund makes donations to organisations which encourage individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices.

 

Our latest donation funded a week long adventure holiday for disadvantaged children from South Yorkshire. For many who attended it was the opportunity of a lifetime.

 

If you would like further details of how your charity or organisation can apply for a grant please contact us.

Healthy Investment is a member of the newly formed Association of Financial Mutuals (AFM). The trade association helps friendly societies and other financial mutuals to explain the benefits of using companies that are owned by and run for the sole benefit of members. The AFM was formed by the coming together of The Association of Friendly Societies and The Association of Mutual Insurers, both of which Healthy Investment was a member of.
