Today our Friday Feelings are even stronger than usual. We're enjoying our lovely 'Cream Teas in a Box' from Action Medical Research. Not only are they delicious, but the £200 we raised will go directly to helping sick and disabled children across the UK. 
Go to http://www.action.org.uk/about-us for more information.

We're feeling charitable. 
If you're a trustee of a charity, check out this little article we've put together about protecting yourself. Trustees can be personally liable for their charities' wrongdoing: that's a scary thought.

It's the time of year when businesses up and down the country are taking in students and interns for a summer of work experience. 
If you don't usually have any employees, however, you might not have the right insurance to protect your business. Any extra helpers are your responsibility, and you could be liable if they're injured or become ill because of their work.
Time to consider employers' liability insurance...

We have a new post on the School of Risk:
Does my business need employers' liability insurance for freelancers? 
It's a question we're asked a lot on Live Chat, so this could be a valuable resource for anyone who's ever wondered what their obligations are regarding freelancers...

Good luck Team PolicyBee who are taking part in the Snowdon Challenge​ 

This is a challenge not to be taken lightly, and we'll be rooting for you tomorrow through your: 
• 20 mile cycle to the foot of Snowdon
• 4 mile run to the peak of Snowdon and back
• 10 mile cycle to Llyn Gwynant
• 1.5 mile kayak 
• 10 mile cycle to the finish

The team have exceeded their fundraising target for the charity Regain - The Trust for Sports Tetraplegics​ a huge achievement on its own. Well done!

If you haven't donated yet, there's still time. (http://www.justgiving.com/teams/MixedDoubles)

Hello, freelancers!
The second Wednesday of June is almost here (where has this year gone?!) which means it’s nearly time for #TheFreelanceWay
This month, we’re doing a bit of an investigation into how small businesses and freelancers deal with legal issues. We want to know:
Where do you go when you need legal advice? 
Whether it’s creating legal documents, chasing unpaid invoices, disputes over contracts, or intellectual property infringements, we want to know where you get your advice. 
Do you call a solicitor? Do you turn to your favourite search engine? Or do you head to a trusted forum for freelancers?
We’re looking at ways to help freelancers with their legal dilemmas, so anything you can tell us would be great. We’re running #TheFreelanceWay 2-4 pm this Wednesday, but feel free to tweet us outside these hours if you can’t make it :)

A garden office can be the perfect solution for a freelancer looking for a happy medium between working from home and renting office space. 
Insuring them, while possible, can be a bit of a headache. Since they're often not as strong, or as secure, as a standard building, some insurers shy away from covering them. 
Don't panic, though. Here's what you need to know to get the right cover for your garden office.

Although being a small business has its benefits, it can make you more vulnerable than your larger competitors. More than 50% of small businesses don’t survive past the two-year mark.
Following these 5 tips will help ensure your business is in the 50% that succeeds.

Pick up a copy of the Daily Mirror today and read our account exec, Laura's, interview about how she came to work in insurance. It's full of useful career advice, too, so perfect if you're hunting for a new role.

We had a wonderful time at the Guardian Small Business Showcase Awards last night. Congratulations to all the winners and runners up - the standard was so high, it must have been incredibly difficult to judge! 
Here's our blog post on the awards and all the winners.
