Mesothelioma UK has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, thanks to nominations from the public. The charity is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical‘s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1 million to charities this summer.

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.

Liz Darlison, Chief Executive Officer said: “We would like to thank Ecclesiastical Insurance Group for its Movement for Good initiative and for this award, which will help us to continue to support mesothelioma patients and their families. We would also like to thank all of our kind supporters for voting for us.”

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.
