 The Customs House Wins £1,000 Movement For Good Award


The Customs House Charity has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.  The South Tyneside arts centre are one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.

 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.

 Development Officer Marie Campbell commented “We are absolutely delighted to hear that we have won a Movement for Good Award. Once again, our brilliant supporters have shown just how incredible they are by nominating The Customs House in their droves. We would like to thank each and everyone of them. This money will help us to continue the work we do across South Tyneside”

 Executive Director Ray Spencer added “A lovely contribution that will help us to continue working with some of the most vulnerable and under represented people in the borough. We would like to thank everyone who voted for us.”

 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.”
