A-Plan Insurance is starting a new initiative for local schools.
They are paying £10 per quote for anyone who calls on 01789 339825 and that quotes "IT 4 schools", with the aim of providing as much money for any schools for laptops for children.
- It’s just anyone, so if you phoned A-Plan for a quote and quoted IT4Schools and said Stratford high school they would get the money.
- You don’t need children yourself, you just need to choose a school.
- They are giving the money directly to schools – the focus will be on local schools that have the need for laptops.
- A-Plan will pledge as much as they can – so 50 quotes = £500. Simple as that.
- They are working with the Leamington branch as well so maximise available consultants.
