Kinghams, one of Croydon’s leading car dealerships, has made a significant pledge to a local children’s charity cause, which they say will also save their customers money on their car insurance.
The dealership based on South End promises to donate half its earnings from all insurance policy sales to Croydon’s oldest children’s charity, The Reedham Trust. Last year, Chris Knott Insurance, who handles insurance for Kinghams, donated more than £150,000 to charities and not-for-profits through a similar scheme.
The Reedham Trust helps vulnerable children and orphans, throughout the UK, who are in urgent need of assistance and care. The charity relies on the support it receives from its many friends and local businesses.
Kinghams Insurance is administered by regional broker, Chris Knott Insurance. Neil Franklin, their MD, said, “We’ve known Kinghams for years through our joint association with the Alfa Romeo Owners’ Club. I’m delighted that we can help a local charity.”
Under the scheme, car insurance is offered at competitive rates. On a typical annual premium, Kingham’s would receive £10 as an introducers’ fee, and £5 of that would go to the charity. A similar donation to the charity will be made on renewals.
Keith Kingham, the dealership’s principal, said, “Every motorist needs insurance and we’ve come up with an interesting alternative. The insurance service is open to anyone who wants a share of their car insurance bill to help vulnerable children through a local, worthy charity. I would encourage everyone to ask for a quote when their car insurance falls due.”
