"We heard about McClarrons insurance through Social Farms & Gardens - without that contact we would never have known and we would have missed out! The service was extremely efficient, thorough and professional.

We work across multiple sites and had an arson attack and break in last year, so there was quite a lot of information to go through. Throughout, the staff were super helpful, friendly and kept everything simple. We ended up with better cover than we'd had and saved over £100, which for a small charity like us, means a lot.  

A big thank you to McClarrons and Social Farms & Gardens.”
