Ecclesiastical has donated £200,000 to five charities as part of Movement for Good awards.

The company is formally named Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc and is authorised and regulated by the FCA and PRA. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group plc which in turn is owned by Allchurches Trust, a registered charity whose objectives are to promote the Christian religion and to provide funds for other charitable purposes.

Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc has over £100m Preference Shares listed on the London Stock Exchange.

It was established by the Church of Englandto provide insurance cover for its buildings. It now covers a wide range of insurance business, and in 2006 it ranked 16th in liability insurance and 20th in accident insurance based on UK Net Written Premiums.

After receiving £10,000 last year, five charities were chosen by a panel of judges to benefit from an additional £40,000 each.

Cornwall-based Penhaligon’s Friends, which provides support for bereaved children, young people and their families, is one of the charities set to benefit from the additional funding. The donation will help Penhaligon’s Friends grow its team and expand its community support. The charity will develop up to four monthly peer groups, in different localities, to enable young people better access to support throughout the county.

Another charity, Sheffield Wildlife Trust, which carries out natural flood management work in South Yorkshire, will use the funding to extend the charity’s work to other suitable sites in the Upper River Don catchment area to mitigate flood risk.

Since the awards were launched three years ago £3m has been given to charities across the UK and Ireland. More than 700 brokers nominated a charity and supported the Movement for Good awards during its first phase last year.
