Insurance Charities teams up with Harry Specters chocolates

The Insurance Charities has partnered with Harry Specters chocolates – a social enterprise set up by Mona, Shaz and their son Ash, who has autism - and will include Harry Specters chocolates in their Awareness Week charity boxes and bags.

While visiting a chocolate shop on a holiday in Scotland in 2011, Mona discovered a perfect way of combining her passion for creating positive change for people with autism with her love for chocolate.

Ash came up with the name and a year later, Harry Specters was born – dedicated to crafting delicious chocolates that create employment for young people with autism. They are involved in every aspect of the business – from making and packaging the products to administration, design and photography.

Since the company inception in November 2012, the company has had 260 beneficiaries which mostly includes young people with autism, who have learnt new skills, resulting in increased confidence, hope, and aspirations for their future.

The Insurance Charities has included Harry Specters chocolates in their Awareness Week charity boxes and bags. This year’s awareness week will take place between 17 – 21 June. “The aim of awareness week is to let as many insurance employees as possible know about their charity, and that we are here to provide help and support to those in the industry in times of need. People are often surprised that we don’t just help those in insurance, but also dependent relatives as we know that when misfortune strikes, whatever it is, it can affect the whole family”.
