 NAPAs chance to win £1,000

NAPA is asking for nominations to win £1,000 Movement for Good award. Charity Number 1070674

NAPA is encouraging people to nominate them to be in for a chance to win £1,000 as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards.

It’s quick and easy to nominate NAPA online. Nominations are open from Wednesday 6 May to Sunday 24 May and you can vote for NAPA online at movementforgood.com  

Winners will be drawn at random and the more times NAPA is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.

Should NAPA be awarded £1000, we will run a series of short 10 minute podcasts. These will be available to care home staff. Each podcast will highlight an essential tip for self-care during the pandemic and beyond.

NAPA is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.

Hilary Woodhead, Executive Director, “NAPA supports the care sector to prioritise the wellbeing of people with care and support needs through the provision of engagement and activity. We believe that staff wellbeing is also crucial, and that staff must have the resources they need to enable them to support others”.

 

Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical, says: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards for the second year running. The coronavirus is having a major impact on charities and many are facing financial difficulties. Our Movement for Good awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.

 

“We were thrilled to receive so many nominations from the public last year and this year we are encouraging even more people to nominate a good cause. Ecclesiastical 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.”
