Thomas, Carroll on a mission for Tŷ Hafan
Thomas, Carroll the Welsh insurance, financial services and health & safety group have become 1970s TV action heroes to celebrate 40 years in business and support of Ty Hafan.
The group has travelled back in time to its roots in 1972 to form ‘The Insurers,’ an affectionate spoof on TV series such as The Protectors featuring Robert Vaughan and The Persuaders, starring Roger Moore and Tony Curtis.
Their mission is to raise £40,000 for Tŷ Hafan, the family hospice for young lives. The directors, led by Thomas, Carroll Chairman John Moore, who plays Sir Charles Stirling, will be appearing as The Insurers at charity events throughout the year.
John Moore, Chairman of Thomas, Carroll group said: ‘We wanted to use our landmark year to celebrate forty years in business and raise vital funds for Tŷ Hafan during tough economic times for charities.
Everyone in the company dressed up for the filming and I am proud of them. We are not afraid to laugh at ourselves in trying to make a difference and The Insurers is a bit of fun which we hope will have a seriously good result for Tŷ Hafan come the end of our busy year of celebrations.”
Thomas, Carroll was founded on October 1st 1972 in Cardiff by Evan Thomas and Terry Carroll and their respective wives Anne and Delma. From its early days in Cardiff, the company now employs 110 people with headquarters in Caerphilly and offices in Swansea and Brecon.
