Charities are being given the chance to secure a Christmas cash boost.

Ecclesiastical Insurance is giving £120,000 to good causes as part of its annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign.

The specialist insurer will be giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation, with 10 winners announced each weekday from 7 to 22 December.

Ecclesiastical is inviting people to nominate a registered charity close to their hearts to benefit from this festive financial boost.

It’s quick and easy to nominate a charity online, with nominations open from 9 November to 21 December.

Winners will be drawn at random – and while it’s not a popularity contest, the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected. Ecclesiastical is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for their favourite cause to give them the best possible chance of winning.

Mark Hews, group CEO of Ecclesiastical, said: “As a commercial company with a charitable purpose, giving back is at the heart of our business. Our annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign will help charities change lives for the better and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference. We’re encouraging everyone to nominate a cause close to their hearts this Christmas to be in for a chance to win a festive financial boost.”

Edinburgh School Uniform Bank, Glasgow City Mission, Hope for Glasgow, Lothian Cat Rescue, Maggie's Cancer Centre, Oliver's Army Assistance and Therapy Dogs, OneKind Charity, The 3 R's Horse Rescue Centre, The Breastfeeding Network and The Kirkmichael Trust SCIO were Scottish beneficiaries in 2019.

A representative from the Edinburgh School Uniform Bank, said: “We were thrilled to be awarded £1,000 by Ecclesiastical. It helped us to press on with our work supporting vulnerable families through this particularly challenging year. Thank you to Ecclesiastical and to everyone who nominated us.”
