Adoption Matters has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award thanks to nominations from the public.

 

Adoption Matters is one of the 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million 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. 13,695 charities were nominated by an amazing 253,879 members of the public.

 

Sarah Johnson, Adoption Matters Fundraising and Relationship Manager, said: “We are so delighted that the public have voted for our charity. The money will aid us in supporting many more children and families through their adoption journey, something which is so crucial right now during the pandemic when demand for our support has hugely increased”

 

Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said:  “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 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.”
