Car insurance premiums have risen

Car insurance premiums have risen for the first time for nearly three years, with young drivers facing the biggest increases.

The AA’s index of the cheapest deals on the market showed that the cost of annual comprehensive car insurance rose by 5.2% in the three months to the end of June.

Drivers aged 23 to 29 have seen a 6.2% rise over the same period, the biggest increase of any age group.

They typically paid a premium of £683.

For business owners it has never been a better time to look at the cost of Fleet Insurance. From three vehicles upwards placing all of your vehicles on one policy could end up saving you £££’s.

Wolf Run for Myton Hospice

SFB’s Paige Howitt is taking part in the Wolf Run on Sunday 6th September.

She will be running alongside fellow Young Professionals in aid of Myton Hospice, the chosen charity for Coventry & Warwickshire First Young Professionals (CWFYP).

Paige is the charity office for CWFYP and put the ‘wolf pack’ together to try and raise awareness of the charity and boost their ongoing support.

Paige said, “I am really looking forward to completing the Wolf Run in September alongside friends and colleagues. We are putting ourselves through the 10k obstacle course to push ourselves to the limit and show people how important it is to support local charities such as Myton Hospice.”

It’s a fantastic cause and worthy of sponsorship. Donations can be made by visiting: www.justgiving.com/youngprofessionals.
