KDM Help George

When our client Provident Insurance requested Sponsorship for a ‘Stars in Your Eyes’ fund raising event we were keen to find out how we could help. Supported by a programme of staff led initiatives, Provident support local charities and voluntary organisations in their local community. This year they are supporting a cause very close to home.

In March 2009 the 17 year old son of Kevin Edwards, a Senior Claims Manager at Provident Insurance, was badly injured as a result of a minor punch from his best friend during a night out. Kevin’s son, George, fell to the ground and banged his head. Sadly it has left George with permanent brain damage leaving him badly disabled.

After a lengthy spell in hospital George was fortunate to secure a place in Tadworth Court which is one of the best rehabilitation units in the country. He continues to make progress and will remain at Tadworth until late summer this year when he will return home to his family where he will require ground floor accommodation for easy wheelchair access.

Once back home, George will need ongoing support and care from the Local Authorities but to make his quality of life just that little bit better there are certain things which the state cannot provide.

To make sure that all the money raised from tickets and acts entries goes to Support George in full Provident are approaching business partners for sponsorship to help fund the prizes for the winning acts. KDM have sponsored the second prize for the event and we wish the Stars in Your Eyes event every success.
