Please note: This site covers the period that I was a Member of Parliament from May 2010 to June 2017.
Earlier this month, Richard officially opened the new British Friendly Society offices whose headquarters are in Bedford.
British Friendly is a small Income Protection insurance company who have been providing sickness and accident cover to their members since 1902. They specialise in cover for the self-employed and manual workers and have over 17,000 members throughout the UK.
Speaking at the event Richard said:
“It’s great that Bedford is home to a national success story and one that is thriving. For over 100 years, Bedford based British Friendly has been paying out claims to people who are too ill to work across the country, so we can say that local people are helping those in need throughout the UK!
“Their new offices and new brand show that Bedford is a good place to do business and the Friendly Society brand is one that is welcome in this age of multinational banking corporations – a friendly focus on helping their members first and foremost.”
