The Penarth-based sail training charity Challenge Wales is asking for nominations from the public to be in with a chance to win Â£1,000 as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards.
Vicky Williams, Trustee says: â€œAt a time when most fundraising has stopped due to the Coronavirus, Â£1,000 will make a huge difference enabling the charity to continue its work (when safe to do so) with vulnerable young people. This will enable the young people to develop their employability skills, improve their mental health and wellbeing and improve their future prospects.â€
Itâ€™s quick and easy to nominate Challenge Wales online. Nominations are open until Sunday 24 May and you can vote for Challenge Wales online, by clicking here. To nominate them you will need their charity number (1111859) and it takes less than 2 minutes. You can also find full details on the charityâ€™s website here.
Winners will be drawn at random and the more times Challenge Wales is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
Challenge Wales is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.
Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical says: â€œWeâ€™re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiasticalâ€™s Movement for Good awards. The Coronavirus is having a major impact on charities and our awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most. We know that for many charities, Â£1,000 can make a real difference.Â
â€œWe 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. Ecclesiastical is a unique financial services group, owned by a charity, which means all available profits can be given to good causes. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business.â€
