Beacon Counselling has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.
Beacon Counselling is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.
This award will help us with increasing our mental health support to the 500+ children and young people experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, emotional abuse, family and other issues. It will specifically enable us completely redesign and redecorate one of our therapy rooms at Beacon House into a Creative Therapy Room specifically for children’s site sessions. This will make all the difference to provide a warm and calming environment following the impact of Covid-19 and return to in-house sessions, facilitating creative resources such as paint, murals, furniture, messy trays and toys.
“Thank you to everyone who voted for Beacon, we’re over the moon to have received this award which will enable us to transom one of our therapy rooms into a Creative Therapy Room for children and young people. Thank you for your support! ” said Joanne Watson, Fundraiser
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.
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. 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.”
