Local charities benefit from Movement for Good grants

HELPING HAND: Compaid supports vulnerable individuals

TWO local charities are celebrating grants from a £1million fund, following public nominations and voting in the Movement for Good Awards.

Over 11,000 good causes in the UK and Ireland received more than 135,000 nominations, and 150 were chosen at random for the grants, which this month included the Brains Matter Charity in Tunbridge Wells, and the Compaid Trust in Paddock Wood – each receiving £1,000.

The more times a charity is nominated, the greater chance it has of being selected in the random draw, said the Benefact Group.

A further 150 winners will be selected in September, and more grants will be made throughout the year.

Further gifts totalling £500,000 will also be donated in larger amounts later this year.

Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group, whose businesses provide specialist insurance, investment management and broking and advisory services in the UK, Australia, Canada and Ireland.

Compaid helps disabled, older and other vulnerable people to overcome the barriers of social, digital and economic exclusion.

The Brains Matter Charity supports adults who have been affected by brain injury.
