Nominated Warwickshire causes bag life-saving funds

Leamington Editorial 11th Jul, 2021   0

LIFE-saving funds have been donated to two charities in Warwickshire.

The Myton Hospices – which provides free end-of-life care and support to families – and Second Chance Akita Rescue UK – which specialises in the rescue of the Japanese dog breed Akita – are the local charities set to benefit from the money, following overwhelming public support in the county.

The charities have received donations of £1,000 each as part of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group’s Movement for Good awards.

Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 awards of £1,000 available for donation.

More than 1,800 kind-hearted residents voted for charities across the county, with more than 210,000 people across the UK supporting the Movement for Good awards. Health causes topped the list with the most nominations, while community and animal and wildlife charities were also front of mind as popular choices.

Thanking supporters in Warwickshire, Ecclesiastical spokesman Mark Hews said: “We have seen an overwhelming public response to our Movement for Good awards for a third year in a row and I would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause. It’s clear that people care deeply about those in need in their region during what has been an incredibly testing time for many. We know that £1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work that charities do and we’re looking forward to seeing how this financial boost will change lives for the better.

“Ecclesiastical, the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK, is a unique financial services group. We are owned by a charity which means all available profits can be given to the good causes that are so important to our customers. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business.”
