Camargue Underwriting Managers sowing seeds for future growth
As this was the first time Camargue had commemorated Arbor Month in this way, there was no watermark for how many policies and therefore trees, would be purchased.
Much to everyone’s delight, 100 trees and counting were earmarked for three beneficiaries that had applied to FTFA for trees.
The three beneficiaries, Bogwasha Primary School, Burger's Fort, Limpopo; Inkamana High School, Vryheid, KwaZulu Natal; EW Hobbs Primary in Eldorado Park, Gauteng; and Moyisela Primary School Orange Farm, Gauteng, had been on FTFAs database for quite some time now. They were delighted to hear they would be receiving trees.
This campaign, done in the spirit of investing in the economy as well as the environment, has served to spread a lot of green cheer this Arbor Month.
