We're delighted to announce that Refugee Support Network has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award thanks to nominations from the public.
RSN was nominated to win a £1,000 boost as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer. This fantastic donation could pay for 30 one-to-one support sessions for young refugees to work through educational, financial and mental health related challenges with one of our expert support workers.
Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. RSN was one of more than 7,000 charities which were nominated by an amazing 98,000 members of the public to be in for a chance to win a financial boost. We’re so grateful to everyone who nominated us and to Ecclesiastical for their generosity.
Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said:
“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.”
