42 donations made as part of the first round of the Allianz Sports Fund initiative


Allianz makes first round of donations to sports clubs around the country, nominated by brokers, amounting to £50,000.

Allianz Insurance is happy to announce that the first round of donations, as part of the Allianz Sports Fund, has been confirmed and the beneficiaries have been notified.

A total of 42 donations, ranging from £500 to £3000, have been made to sports clubs around the country, totalling £50,000.

Launched earlier this year, the Allianz Sports Fund offers financial support for community sports in the UK. The new initiative allows brokers to support their local grassroots sports club by nominating receive a grant from Allianz. Awards are to help these clubs continue to provide opportunities within their local community and ease the financial impact as a result of coronavirus.

One sports club to have received a donation is Silhillians Rugby Football Club. Their chairman, Lee Jones commented: “Thank you for granting our club these funds, with them we will continue to provide support and development through rugby to our local women and underprivileged children”.

As part of the initiative, every club that has received a donation will also receive a package with branded water bottles, towels and other sports equipment.

Carolyn Rich, head of brand and social responsibility, Allianz Insurance said: “We are happy to be able to reach out and support local communities and sports centres across the country.

“Allianz has supported sport through our various sponsorships for many years and we’re delighted to be able to support grassroots sports too. As the Worldwide Insurance Partner for the Olympic and Paralympic Movements, we understand the power of sport. We hope people are encouraged to get out and make the most of these sports clubs.

“We are also proud to support our brokers to connect with their local communities. We feel this is a great opportunity to bring the two together, and we cannot wait to get together and choose the next lucky group of clubs to benefit from this.”

The next round of donations will be decided in November, and brokers can submit nominations from 2nd August 2021.
