Once again, Ecclesiastical is inviting London residents 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. Nominations are open from 9 November to 21 December and you can vote for your favourite charity at

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.

Last year saw an amazing 140,000 people around the UK support the 12 days of giving Christmas campaign in total, with over 7,100 charitable causes up and down the country receiving votes.
