Thank you UK Healthcare. Your donation will help a remarkable student to achieve their goal

Many thanks indeed to health cash plan provider UK Healthcare, for a donation which will help a Snowdon student to achieve their dream of pursuing higher education in the 2015/16 academic year.

Our Snowdon Trust grants are unique in providing additional funding for costs relating to physical or sensory disabilities – helping students to achieve their educational goals and leading to a successful future.

But here at the Snowdon Trust, we rely solely upon the generosity of the public, charitable trusts and businesses like UK Healthcare to provide the money we need to fund these grants.

UK Healthcare’s donation of £2,500 will effectively sponsor a Snowdon grant to a student who has successfully applied for funding. It may be used to pay for a number of things, like computer equipment, adapted accommodation, travel costs and much more.

For Stephen Pugh, CEO of UK Healthcare, the donation was a chance to help remarkable young people who were working hard to help themselves.

He said: “The UK Healthcare team admire the Snowdon Trust and their work with ambitious young people who live with a variety of physical and sensory disabilities.  We are delighted to help the trust and we look forward to finding out about more young people who have taken advantage of this unique opportunity.”

UK Healthcare provide corporate health cash plans which help businesses to safeguard the health and wellbeing of their staff. As a plan holder, employees can claim back cash on a variety of medical services and prescriptions up to generous policy limits.

In addition to providing this service, UK Healthcare donates thousands to charity every year. In fact, the company has donated almost half a million pounds to healthcare related charities in the past five years.
