Co-op gives £75,000 to help cancer sufferers

Co-operative Insurance Society has raised over £75,000 for Macmillan Cancer Relief through sales of its critical-illness cover policies since 1999.

The society pledged to give £2 to the charity for each new policy sold when it launched the product in November 1999.

The donations help fund grants given by Macmillan to cancer patients and their families to pay for holidays and buy practical items such as new clothes and wigs for patients who have lost weight and suffered hair loss due to chemotherapy treatment.

Macmillan corporate development manager Stephen Roose-Jones says: “Macmillan receives £2 from every policy sold and all the funds are spent wisely helping cancer patients on their journey. Over 700 people are diagnosed with cancer every week – that is 700 people whose lives will be changed forever. We try to be there for every single one of them.”

Slips on Sipps

However, since I am sure a number of exam candidates read these articles, I would be grateful if you would ensure that it is made clear that the tax charge levied by the Inland Revenue on surpluses […]

Be flexible

Since the present Government first came to power, there has been an (understandable) underlying expectation that “something would be done” about inheritance tax. Well, short of increasing the nil rate band in successive Budgets, nothing much has happened.The marketers and advisers on the proliferation of largely (if not exclusively) insurance-based inheritance tax plans are especially […]
