Data reveals charitable habits of Lincolnshire residents

A new study of over 30,000 charity supporters has revealed Lincolnshire is among the most kind-hearted counties in the UK.

Data released today from Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards has revealed that more than 200 county residents have so far pledged their support to a charity that is ‘close to their heart’.

Animal welfare is the issue they care most about, with healthcare and support for community causes completing the top three most popular charity sectors in the county.

People aged 36 – 45 are more likely to support a charity than any other age group within the region.

The Movement for Good awards from Ecclesiastical Insurance will see a total of £1 million given to charities this summer. Members of the public can nominate a cause for a potential £1,000 award.

More than 20 local charities now stand a chance to receive one of these £1,000 grants via nominations from kind-hearted Lincolnshire supporters.

The data has been taken from public nominations made in the weeks since the campaign launched.

It shows that people living in the South East1 are the most supportive of charitable organisations in the UK.

Thanking supporters in Lincolnshire, Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical, said:

“We have seen a fantastic response to our Movement for Good awards so far. With nominations still open we hope many more charities are put forward for a potential £1,000 award, which we know can make a huge difference to the work that charities do.

“So far the bulk of the nominations have been made in the South of England and by over 35s. We want to urge people in the North, and younger generations across the UK, to also get involved and nominate a cause close to their hearts.”
