Bay Trust Radio has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.
Bay Trust Radio is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.
The money will be spent on purchasing equipment to help Bay Trust Radio to continue broadcasting.
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.
John Williamson President and Station Manager said, “it is fantastic news that our charity has been awarded the money and will help us to purchase equipment to continue in offering the best radio service ready for our launch on DAB+ later this year”.
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.”
