Children
We understand that children right now might be finding the current situation a little difficult to understand.  There is a really good story on the link here which you may wish to share with your childrenhttps://nosycrowcoronavirus.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/Coronavirus_ABookForChildren.pdf 
May Competitions
We are running 2 competitions again for the month of May to help keep everyone’s spirits up.

For the adults we are running a ‘Spot the Helicopter’ competition on our Facebook page LPF Trusts. Its much like the old ‘Spot the Ball’ from years ago if any of you remember that!!  There are 3 prizes for this which are retail vouchers of £100, £75 and £50.  On our Facebook page we have an image but the helicopter is missing from the image.  Please email your guess to [email protected] we need your name, email address and the letter square you think the helicopter is in.  So go on, give it a go for a chance to win a bit of retail therapy on us!! *T&Cs apply For the kids we are offering a family break at our luxury 4 bedroom holiday lodge in the Cotswolds.  We appreciate many of you will no longer be able to take your regular family holiday this year so your child now has the chance to win a holiday for you!!  We are asking children to send us their ‘Post Lockdown Wishes’, this could be a trip to the farm, hugging their grandparents again or maybe even a cheeky Happymeal!!  All we ask is that your child draws us a picture of their wish with a brief description and sends it to us via email [email protected] **T&Cs apply

Group Insurance Travel Claims (Covid19)
In the first instance you should make contact with your tour operator, airline, accommodation provider or other travel companies to discuss options such as refunds, amendments or postponements. Alternatively approach your method of payment provider (ie. Barclaycard, Amex) to obtain a refund. Only if you have exhausted all possible refunds or rescheduling by these means should you then submit a claim for consideration to CSA (Claims Settlement Agency). 

The hyperlink to their on-line claim forms are contained on our website under Group Insurance/Claims.In any event do not automatically cancel your holiday, please ensure you take action as per the above guidance as your Group Insurance will not cover a cancellation claim in these circumstances, as it may be considered as “disinclination to travel”.In addition to the above information claims for cancellation and curtailment will be considered but are unlikely to be paid if the holiday/travel was booked after the 13th of March 2020 in relation to Covid19. 

For the latest information on either of our Schemes please see our website www.lpf-trusts.co.uk We do hope you are keeping well and hopefully managing to enjoy some of this glorious sunshine. As always, if you need us we are all still contactable so give us a call and we will come back to you. 

Kind regards 
LPF Trust
