Our Time has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.
We are one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.
Our Time will use the donation for core funds that will go towards supporting our outreach work, speaking directly to young people and the families affected by a parent’s mental health issues.
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.
Christina Clarke, Communications Lead for Our Time, says: “We would like to thank Ecclesiastical and their Movement for Good award scheme as well as the general public who took time to nominate us for this award. The funds will help us in our work to make a difference to the millions of young people affected by parental mental illness across the UK.”
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.”
