(Amesbury, Wilshire) 8th December 2014 Animal Friends Pet Insurance celebrates entering the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100

Wiltshire based Animal Friends are celebrating this Christmas as they are now the 77th fastest growing company in Britain out of over 3.3 million private companies according to the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 published in the Sunday Times on 7th December 2014.

The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over their latest three years.

Head of the Virgin Group Sir Richard Branson said:” The Fast Track 100 has become the definitive barometer for private company growth”.

Animal Friends’ Founder and Managing Director Elaine Fairfax said: “I am absolutely thrilled that we have been included in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 and that our tremendous growth has been recognised. From starting in one room of our house to now being perhaps the second biggest pet insurer in the UK has been an amazing journey. Now to be the 77th fastest growing companies in the UK out of a list that exceeds 3.3 million is absolutely incredible.  My husband and I started the company in 1998 taking on some of the largest insurance companies in the UK;  I particularly wanted to raise funds for animal charities through the business and make a difference to animal welfare.   Now, not only has Animal Friends Insurance been recognised for its growth but we have now given away over £2million (by the end of December) to animal welfare charities worldwide which is what I set out to do in the beginning.”
