Posted Wednesday, 2nd December 2020

Nominate Carlisle Mencap and we could receive a £1,000 Christmas gift! Ecclesiastical Insurance is inviting people to nominate a registered charity close to their hearts and will be giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation, with 10 winners announced each weekday from December 7-22.

The specialist insurers will be handing out £1,000 to charities during their annual 12 Days of Giving Christmas campaign. It’s quick and easy to nominate a charity online. Nominations are open until December 21 and you can vote for your favourite charity at

Winners will be drawn at random – and while it’s not a popularity contest, the more times Carlisle Mencap is nominated the more chance it has of being selected. Ecclesiastical is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for their favourite cause to give them the best possible chance of winning.

Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical, said: “As a commercial company with a charitable purpose, giving back is at the heart of our business. Our annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign will help charities change lives for the better and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference. We’re encouraging everyone to nominate a cause close to their hearts this Christmas to be in for a chance to win a festive financial boost.”

THANK YOU for your support ...
