BHSF treats customer of 77 years to day out

BHSF treated their longest serving customer to a day out and lunch at Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens.


Harold Pickford (better known as Victor) has been a customer of the national supplier of health and employee benefits for 77 years.  Aged 91, he started contributing when he was 14.


“When I started working, my mother insisted I start contributing to the Birmingham Hospital Saturday Fund, as it was called then. I didn’t really understand what is was but she told me it was worthwhile – and I’ve never regretted taking her advice.”


Mr Pickford, who worked for Lucas Industries, was accompanied on the visit to the Botanical Gardens by his friend Joyce.


Peter Maskell, Chief Executive of BHSF, said: “We’re pretty certain that Mr Pickford is our longest serving customer and we were delighted to give him, being a keen gardener, and Joyce a day out at the Botanical Gardens.


“We would, of course, be delighted to hear from anyone who believes they have been a customer for longer than Mr Pickford.”
