Nominations are open until 13 June and winners will be drawn at random from nominations. “The more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected,” said the insurer.
Ecclesiastical Insurance Group chief executive Mark Hews said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards for the third year running.
“Our Movement for Good awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.
“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.”
