Bowls Scotland partner with Gallagher

Bowls Scotland are delighted to announce a new partnership with insurance broker and risk management firm, Gallagher.

Gallagher provides services to many local businesses and communities across Scotland and Northern England, helping to ensure they have the right insurance and risk management in place to protect their business. Formed in 1927, Gallagher has over 6,000 employees in the UK alone, including a 100-strong Glasgow team which will be responsible for supporting bowling clubs throughout Scotland.

For the last 12 consecutive years Gallagher has been recognised by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the world’s most ethical companies and it is no stranger to working within sport as it is the title sponsor of the English Rugby Premiership. Gallagher will now support bowling clubs across Scotland with the following types of insurance cover:

  • Bespoke Commercial Combined
  • Directors and Officers liability
  • Automatic Day One Inflation provision up to 25% on buildings

Before completing our partnership agreement, Gallagher worked with Springburn Bowling Club to assist with its insurance cover. Speaking on Springburn BC’s relationship with Gallagher, the club’s Honorary Treasurer, Janice McVean, said “I have been the Honorary Treasurer of Springburn Bowling Club for the past 10 years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of working with Gallagher as did my predecessor.

“The level of service received from this company has been excellent, always ensuring that we get the best deal for the services we require. I particularly like that I have a nominated person to deal with who has the best interest of us as a client and who deals with any enquiry promptly and professionally. I would happily recommend Gallagher to any who require this service.”

Looking forward to working alongside Gallagher, Alan McMillan, CEO of Bowls Scotland, commented: “We are aiming to engage with commercial partners who can assist clubs in saving on annual costs and I am delighted that Gallagher has come on board to join our growing commercial partners group.

“The firm offers a full range of insurance cover, and I am excited that Gallagher’s vastly experienced team understand the challenges that bowling clubs face in the current climate of costs increasing.”

Douglas McEwan, Account Executive for Gallagher, added: “We are delighted to be working with Bowls Scotland and developing our relationship with bowling clubs, protecting their assets and providing cover for any liability issues at the clubs.

“I have played the game myself for over 20 years and some of the team are also bowlers, so we understand what is required to help with this important decision on insurance. We have an in-house claims team and loss assessors within our office who will provide a full service in the event of a club needing to make a claim.”
