Engage COVID 19 Update - 25 November
12 Days of Giving
Movement For Good know how important it is to support the most vulnerable in our society so once again their 12 days of giving will provide vital support to remarkable organisations. Here is what a previous recipient said:
"Every day 6,000 people become carers in the UK. Many don’t know how or where to get help. It can be frightening and very lonely. For some it’s sudden: someone you love is taken ill or has an accident, your child is born with a disability... caring will affect all of us at some point in our lives and the £1,000 donation from Ecclesiastical will help Carers UK to be there for when that happens"
Carers UK – 12 days of giving winner, 2019
The draw is open to registered charities, not-for-profit organisations and community interest companies. 10 winners will be drawn at random each weekday and nominations will remain open until midnight the day before each draw. Draws will take place each weekday from 07 – 22 December 2020.
