Ecclesiastical Insurance is giving £120,000 to good causes as part of its 12 days of giving Christmas campaign
West Norfolk residents are being encouraged to nominate a local charity to win £1,000 as a festive boost from a specialist insurer.
Ecclesiastical Insurance will be giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation as part of of its 12 days of giving campaign.
Ten lucky winners will be announced each weekday from December 7 to 22.
Norfolk Lowland Search And Rescue and Raise Kids Work were local beneficiaries in 2019, following overwhelming public support in the county.
Nominations are open from now until December 21. People can vote for their favourite charity by visiting www.movementforgood.com/12days
Winners will be drawn at random, and the insurer says while it’s not a popularity contest, the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
Last year saw140,000 people around the UK support the 12-day Christmas campaign, with over 7,100 charitable causes up and down the country receiving votes.
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.”
