West Midlands good causes have just days left to apply for Ecclesiastical's £1,000 grants

Rob George 11th Jun, 2021

GOOD causes in the county have until Sunday (June 13) to be nominated for a chance to win grants of £1,000 each from insurance company Ecclesiastical.

Some 500 charities will each receive £1,000 during the first phase of the campaign. A second phase of giving will happen later this summer.

Since the project began in 2019, over 3,900 West Midlands residents have nominated causes they care about, leading to the Movement for Good awards gifting £29,000 to charities across the county. Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity, The Birmingham Dogs Home and The Lily Mae Foundation were amongst the beneficiaries, following overwhelming public support.

Winners will be drawn at random and the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
