Health Shield set to participate in Cash Plan Provider Golf Day

On 16 September, Health Shield and six other health cash plan providers — Westfield, Engage Mutual, Simply Health, Birmingham Hospital Saturday Fund, Medicash and Hospital Saturday Fund — will come together to participate in the Cash Plan Provider Golf Day.

The event will take place at the Forest of Arden golf course and the money raised will be donated to Breast Cancer Care — a charity chosen by Westfield. Each provider was asked to nominate a good cause to play for, with the Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries’ (AMII’s) chairman, Wayne Pontin, picking the provider’s name out of a hat at the organisation’s recent annual conference.

The fundraiser is expected to raise around £3,500 for the charity, and the providers hope to make the golf day an annual event.

The golf day is the latest in a series of fundraising activities that Health Shield has participated in over the past 12 months. Earlier this year, the Health Shield team parodied the ‘Harlem Shake’ video, donating more than £1,000 to Comic Relief. Six teams of employees also completed a triathlon to raise £2,500 for Beating Bowel Cancer UK, on top of raising more than £1,500 for Chrons and Colitis UK.
