Shrewsbury based insurance broker 1st Choice Insurance are offering the use of a spare office to any local businesses in need of a room and equipment for meetings. The meeting room located in Jupiter House on Shrewsbury Business Park, also has the optional use of whiteboards and a projector, should the client require it.
June marked the start of a new offering from the team at 1st Choice Insurance to the Shropshire business community. If anyone is finding it difficult to find an office space to hold meetings, training and the like during the current climate; they are welcome to contact 1st Choice to check availability of their meeting rooms. No payment to the company is required, instead they simply request a minimum £50 donation to their Charity of the Year ‘Little Rascals Foundation’ for the use of a room for an entire morning or afternoon, Monday to Friday.
1st Choice’s Marketing Team Member Holly said “We had heard from some local clients and connections that many function rooms in the area have been closed during the pandemic and were struggling to find places to arrange safe meetings. Since moving to our new larger premises back in November, we find ourselves with some extra space that isn’t in constant use, especially with many staff still working from home, so we felt it was a great opportunity to help people out.”
Niamh Kelly of The HR Dept recently visited 1st Choice to make use of the meeting room, “I met Rose (Head of Client Services) through business networking and our companies have done business together. Had a confidential and sensitive matter where my client needed to hold a meeting away from their own premises. As a company, 1st Choice is a great support to Shropshire Business, so knew that if they could, they would be willing to provide this. The new premises and facilities are amazing, and we were looked after very well.”
1st Choice hope to help out more businesses in the area with their meeting space and felt this was also a great way to make further contributions to their Charity of the Year for 2020, Little Rascals Foundation, who are also based in Shrewsbury and do amazing work to make life easier for children with disabilities and their families.
