In 12 days of giveaways, Ecclesiastical is asking you to nominate your favourite charity to receive an early Christmas present

Ecclesiastical is giving £120,000 to good causes as part of its annual 12 Days of Giving Christmas campaign.

The insurer will be giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation.

10 charities will be chosen each business day between 6 and 21 December.

Ecclesiastical is urging anyone to nominate their favourite charity via the website

The charity winners will be announced on Ecclesiastical’s website and on Twitter and LinkedIn each day.

Chris Pitt, corporate responsibility manager at Ecclesiastical, said: “As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, we believe charitable giving is really important, and even small amounts can add up to make a big difference.

“Last year, our 12 Days of Giving campaign helped a vast range of causes, from funding heat pads to keep hedgehogs warm to helping a telephone befriending service for isolated carers. This year, we hope to help 120 causes close to people’s hearts.”
