Specialist insurer Ecclesiastical is giving away £1million to charities with the launch of its Movement for Good awards.
Opening today, members of the public can nominate a cause close to their hearts for a potential £1,000 award.
500 charities will each receive £1,000 during the first phase of the campaign, with the nomination process running until Friday 17 May.
To mark the start of the nominations, 500 bright orange piggy banks flooded the centres of Edinburgh, Cardiff, Manchester and London, highlighting the number of
charities that will win a £1,000 award.
Winners will be drawn at random and the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
It’s quick and easy to nominate, you can vote for your favourite charity online at:
Later this summer, ten charities will also be chosen by a panel of judges to receive £50,000 from Ecclesiastical for major projects that can make a real difference to
communities over a number of years.
Owned by a charity, Ecclesiastical is the only financial services group that exists to give all its profits to charity. It has given £100million to charity over the past five years and is the fourth largest corporate giver in the UK
