Bell & Co

Bell & Co - a Midlands Hub

Bondholder Bell & Co has been acquired by national brokerage Aston Scott Group.

Bell & Co will continue to trade, and the Board of Directors will remain the same. This investment means the Derby office will become a Midlands hub for Aston Scott.

Richard Salt, Managing Director for Bell & Co, said: "In an era where scale and quality means so much to our insurer suppliers, this is great news for our existing and new customers and growing team. We are really excited that Aston Scott are backing us and our staff with ambitious growth plans.

"Derby has in my view needed a broker of this scale for some time. It is what we have been aspiring to and we are proud to achieve this through everyone’s hard work and now Aston Scott's support."

YMCA's Sleep Easy

Bondholder YMCA's Derbyshire’s 2017 Sleep Easy event is taking place on Friday 31st March, at fellow Bondholder Derbyshire County Cricket Club's 3aaa County Ground.

All the money raised from YMCA Derbyshire's Sleep Easy event goes towards the Safe Front Door Campaign. This campaign enables YMCA Derbyshire to continue providing safe accommodation, opportunities for young people to engage in positive activities, work experience and volunteer opportunities and gain business mentors.

Many Bondholders have previously taken part in the event, including Toyota Manufacturing UK, Bell and Co and Geldards.

Richard Salt, Managing Director of Bell & Co, said: "The Sleep Easy was anything but! I did it with my friend Simon Storey from the Derbyshire Cricket Club and a team of willing volunteers from Bell & Co. I found it challenging and perhaps life changing.

"I understand we changed lives along the way and hence the frozen shoes I woke to were worth it! I’d thoroughly recommend this experience to any business looking for a really great cause to support. It really helped us raise our game and team build too."

Simon Storey Chief Executive of Derbyshire County Cricket Club has signed up for his fourth year running and said: “Events such as Sleep Easy highlight the very difficult plight that homeless people are facing every day and every night in this country. “I would encourage people to support this very good cause as generously as possible by participating or sponsoring participants in Sleep Easy 2016."
