Lead sponsor

We are delighted to announce that CSIS will be the lead sponsor of our Maidstone Road Run 2022 event, taking place on Sunday 6 March.

The Civil Service Insurance Society (CSIS) was founded over 130 years ago to provide Insurance services to Civil Servants. From day one all its profits were used to support widows and orphans of deceased policyholders. Today CSIS is still a “not for profit” organisation, providing Motor, Home and Travel Insurance to current, former and retired Civil and Public Servants and their partners.

As a member of  the Maidstone community, based in the heart of the town, and as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility programme, they  have  been able to support local Kent charities by donating over £350k in the last 15 years.

CSIS, began supporting Heart of Kent Hospice in 2015, and is excited to be supporting what is an inspiring annual event that raises valuable funds for Heart of Kent Hospice.
