Don't forget to make your AMI Community Grant application...

AMI Insurance

Our friends at the Wellington Fire Service Support Unit were recipients of an AMI Community Grant last year! Here's a few words from the team:

"We put the AMI Community Grant to good use very quickly. It enabled our volunteer brigade to purchase a set of robust scene lights which have already been used to increase safety at multiple emergency incidents. All our members have a passion for helping our neighbours when times get tough and thanks to the AMI Community Grants we are able to do even more." - Jono Ashman, Officer in Charge, Wellington Operational Support

Are you involved with an organisation or project doing good in the community but needing a helping hand? Make sure you apply for an AMI Community Grant. There's $15,000 up for grabs!
