Lincolnshire people called upon to nominate causes close to their hearts for £1,000 award

For the fourth year running, Benefact Group is giving away over £1million to charities with the return of its Movement for Good Awards.

From today, people in Lincolnshire can nominate a cause close to their hearts for a potential £1,000 award to help make a difference. 500 charities around the UK will each receive £1,000 during the campaign.

Since the initiative began in 2019, nearly 3,500 Lincolnshire residents have nominated causes they care about, leading to the Movement for Good Awards gifting £11,000 to charities across the county. Lincs Dobermann Rescue, Histiocytosis UK and Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service were amongst the beneficiaries last year, following overwhelming public support.

Anyone can nominate a registered charity at any time for the chance to receive £1,000. The first 250 winners will be announced in June, a further 250 winners will be announced in September. 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: www.movementforgood.com

Mark Hews, group Chief Executive of Benefact Group, says: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Benefact Group’s Movement for Good Awards for the fourth year running. We were thrilled to receive so many nominations from the public last year and this year we are encouraging even more people to nominate a good cause they love.

“Benefact Group, formerly named Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, is the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK and is keen to give even more. Owned by a charity, all of its available profits go to good causes, and the more the group grows, the more the group can give.

“As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of what we do. Our Movement for Good Awards will continue to help charities change lives for the better and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.”

A further 120 £1,000 grants will be given away in December and £500,000 will also be given in larger grants later this year.

Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group.
