Aviva Community Fund – Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University

Here at Hinks Insurance, we are proud advocates of the amazing Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University. We support their wonderful ‘Breakfast with Santa’ campaign, and as a team attend their fundraising events where possible. So when we heard about the Aviva Community Fund, we knew exactly who to nominate.



The Hull and East Yorkshire Children’s University is a fantastic charity that works with children living in some of the country’s most deprived postcodes. The charity’s aim is to raise the aspirations, confidence and resilience of young people living in areas of disadvantage in our city. They do this by providing experiences that these children would otherwise never have.


A third of children in Hull grow up living in poverty.  Most of these children have never left our city, and many have never even been into the city centre. HEY Children’s University believes that ALL children should get to see beyond the end of their street and explore what is out there. They broaden horizons for the children so that they can aspire to achieve something with their lives.


Whether it is a trip to London to learn all about the Capital, or a visit to a business to learn about that industry, the experiences Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University provides inspire, engage and educate, helping the children discover talents they never knew they had. This puts the fire in the children’s bellies that will help them to succeed.  To find our more about what this amazing charity do, please click here.
