Staff members from the Collinson Insurance Group in Navan travelled to Drogheda recently to present the Drogheda Homeless Aid group with a cheque for €2,000.
The 94 staff members at Collinson contribute €2 a month from their salaries into a charity fund and members choose a charity to donate it to when it reaches €2,000.
In the past they have donated to SOSAD (Navan), and Whistlemount Day Care Centre, which caters for people suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.
Collinson offers two main lines of service - creating and delivering bespoke insurance products for travel and healthcare. For example, over the last three years and in collaboration with VHI, we have developed a dental product and dental network, allowing policy holders to make direct payments with dentists across Ireland.
This product, VHI Dental, has contributed to making Collinson Insurance Services Limited the largest dental insurer in Ireland and in conjunction with VHI has some of the key corporate contracts with super brands such as Google, Oracle and Hertz.
They also provide customer services for multiple products across the travel and healthcare markets for corporate clients, all of our claims handlers hold professional qualifications, which is a requirement of the Central Bank for Financial Service employees in Ireland.
