Making life Ease-ier

Unum is sponsoring a disabled charity event with the help of former model


and disability campaigner Heather Mills.


Mills, who has a prosthetic limb, is pictured with Unum marketing director


Eugene McCormack at the Ease Awards sponsorship launch last week.


The awards recognise companies which are increasing their Ease of Access


Service and Employment for disabled customers and employees.


Unum is sponsoring the awards, run by charity Queen Elizabeth&#39s Foundation


for Disabled People, in a £150,000 deal over three years.


McCormack says: “With six million disabled people in the UK, it is vital


that more businesses look to the winners of the 2000 Ease Awards for


leadership.”
