Ecclesiastical recently announced the recipients of phase 1 of this year’s Movement for Good awards. Overall, it is giving £1m to charities, and phase 1 saw 500 charities awarded £1,000 each, following public nominations.

In total, more than 210,000 people around the UK supported the awards, with over 13,000 charitable causes up and down the country receiving votes. The 500 winning charities were picked at random from those nominated.

Health causes topped the list with the most nominations, while community and animal and wildlife charities were also front of mind as popular choices, with the Good Grief Trust, Berkshire Autistic Society and Wessex Children’s Hospice Trust among the recipients.
