Lancashire charity, Rainbow Hub, has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.
It is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.
Rainbow Hub supports children with physical and neurological disabilities through a range of therapies tailored to their individual needs and designed to help each achieve their own potential. This award will help the charity continue and develop their much needed services.
Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. Over 13,000 charities were nominated by more than 210,000 members of the public.
Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive, Rainbow Hub, said, “We are delighted to have been nominated by
the public to receive a grant and that the importance of our work with disabled children is recognised. We cannot thank them enough as we do not receive any statutory funding, every penny counts in ensuring we can continue to provide the services that change the lives of the children and families we support.”
Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, says: “We would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause as part of our Movement for Good awards. 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. 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.”
