Make 2nds Count wins £1,000 Movement for Good Award

Make 2nds Count has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award thanks to nominations from the public.

Make 2nds Count was nominated to win a £1,000 boost as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.

The donation will be used to help set up meet up groups for those living with secondary breast cancer and those close to them throughout the UK.

Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. Make 2nds Count was one more than 7,000 charities which were nominated by an amazing 98,000 members of the public to be in for a chance to win a financial boost.

Euan Fleming, one of the trustees from Make 2nds Count, said: “Alongside raising as much money as possible for research, it has always been one of the charity’s main aims to set up sorely needed meet up groups for those living with secondary breast cancer. Receiving this wonderful award will allow us to put this aim into action".”

Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said:  “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.”
