We’re proud to announce that we raised £4,185 for bereavement charity Once Upon a Smile at our annual charity golf day. Over 140 of our broker partners and guests attended the event and funds were raised through a series of golf games, as well as a raffle and an auction.

Once Upon a Smile provides support for families that have lost a loved one, and was founded in 2011 by actors Daniel Jillings and Danny Miller, stars of ITV dramas Prey and Emmerdale.

Daniel Jillings, who attended the event at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa, delivered a heart-warming speech about the support Once Upon a Smile offers and explained how their help has changed the lives of those affected. Auction prizes for the evening included a week’s stay in a Marbella villa, a three-night break for two in Cannes, and a Hollyoaks set tour with one of the show’s stars, James Sutton.

Our commercial CEO, Marc Goldberg, said: “Our involvement with Once Upon a Smile began in April, when we sponsored a charity football match arranged by one of the families they have helped, and we saw first-hand the invaluable support the charity provides.

Daniel Jillings, charity manager at Once Upon a Smile, added: “We’re very grateful for the ongoing support from Together. The funds raised will help us in providing services for more bereaved families, both in terms of respite and financial support.”
