Ecclesiastical Insurance Ireland, through its parent company Benefact Group, is sharing in the giving of over €1million this year to charities through its Movement for Good awards. Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 250 awards of €1,000 available for donation at this time. The charities who received the donation, were picked at random from those nominated.
The local charities set to benefit from the money following overwhelming public support, include:
The third draw will take place in December – where Ecclesiastical and the Benefact Group will be sharing over €120,000 across 120 charities, in 12 days. One draw will take place every working day between 1st of December and the 16th of December, and the charities will be selected from those that have been nominated by the public. It’s quick and easy to nominate, you can vote for your favourite charity online at: www.movementforgood.com
David Lane, Managing Director for Ecclesiastical Insurance Ireland, said: “As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business. We know that €1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work that charities do, and we would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a charity as part of our Movement for Good Awards.”
“Congratulations to the six Irish winners and we look forward to seeing how this financial boost will help them continue to contribute towards building a better society.”
A further 120 €1,000 grants will be given away in December and €500,000 will also be given in larger grants later this year. For more information about the awards visit www.movementforgood.com
