Penny Black's Insurance Week - 5 June 2014


Penny’s cockles were well and truly warmed this week to see victims of this winter’s flooding in Somerset band together in support of those hit by similar events in the Balkans.

Heavy rain in Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia left more than 35 dead and caused thousands to flee their homes in the worst flooding for decades. In solidarity, the Flooding on the Levels Action Group is organising collections of supplies for those affected, with requests for long-life foods, hygiene supplies and mattresses among other items. For more information go to @dredgetherivers on Twitter. Meanwhile, Post was first to be granted access to new RSA boss Stephen Hester, and just days later Penny met with a pair of RSA staffers keen for the inside scoop. What did the intrepid insurance workers want to know? Would they try to press Penny for details of Post’s rendezvous with Hester, of what secrets the former RBS boss gave up? Alas no, top of the pile marked ‘questions’ was: “What did Post think of the new office?” RSA recently became the first tenant of London’s Walkie Talkie building, and clearly staff are tickled pink on their new surroundings. Penny’s tastes, of course, are rather less gauche.
