Red Caravan rolls on thanks to Carpenters

Carpenters Group and AXA Insurance have collaborated to provide free cover to the Red Caravan, a mobile display of photographs and memorabilia that travels around Liverpool sharing memories of the football team with fans no longer able to attend matches.
The Red Caravan is a renovation project undertaken by Emma Case as part of the Red Archive. It was completed in the autumn of 2021 but had no public liability insurance until help came from Donna Scully, Director, Carpenters Group, via John Collins of the House of Walton charity, which Carpenters Group support.
Scully said, “John contacted me as we support Our House Walton and asked if I could help Emma. I contacted my long-time friend who worked at AXA Insurance, David Williams, and asked if they could help, particularly as they sponsor Liverpool FC and are a great company. Straight away, despite it being difficult, they arranged insurance for Emma and the Red Caravan at no cost. That’s such a lovely team effort.”
Case said, “It was such a lovely thing as it was a mixture of the passion for Liverpool FC but also, the biggest passion for supporting small social enterprises who are wanting to get out into our local communities. People like Donna help us get off the ground, and knowing people believe in what we’re doing gives us even more fire in our bellies to make it happen.”Tweet
