Nominate a charity to receive a festive financial boost

 

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

Charities are being given the chance to gain a much needed festive financial boost.

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

Now into its fifth year, the campaign sees the specialist insurer giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation, with 10 winners announced each weekday from 6 to 21 December.

Ecclesiastical is inviting people to nominate a registered charity close to their hearts to benefit from this festive financial boost. Last year over 285,000 nominations were made with a staggering 17,800 different charities nominated for a chance to win.

It’s quick and easy to nominate a charity online. Nominations are open until Monday 20 December and you can vote for your favourite charity on the website.

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 chief executive of Ecclesiastical, said: “As a commercial company with a charitable purpose, giving back is at the heart of our business. In fact, Ecclesiastical is the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK.

“Our annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign has supported hundreds of charities over the past four years and I’m delighted that we will once again help charities change lives for the better.

“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.”
