Hull UK City of Culture 2017
Hull was announced the winner of UK City of Culture 2017 in 2013. The award is given every four years to a city that demonstrates the belief in the transformational power of culture. In order to achieve their fundraising target of at least £18 million and to deliver their arts and cultural programme, they enlisted the support of local businesses, one of which we are proud to say is Jelf Insurance Partnership.
Jelf Insurance Partnership has long been known as a 'community broker', an accolade we don't use lightly. You can't purport to be a community broker if you don't give back to the community in which you have been established.
With this in mind, and as a long standing member of the Hull business community, it gives me great pleasure to have become a Business Club partner of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. It was an effortless decision to join the ranks in supporting this wonderful city of ours, and all that the City of Culture represents.
Not only will our support along with the other members help to build upon the existing success of the area, but we will play an integral part in creating its ongoing legacy. It’s a real chance for us to invest in our region, and get involved in what promises to be exciting times packed full of prestigious events and new developments.
