Specialist insurer Ecclesiastical has announced that it will be extending its Trust 130 campaign for a third year.
Launched in 2018 to celebrate the insurer’s 130th anniversary year, Ecclesiastical pledged to donate £130 to an Anglican Church of the customer’s choice for every direct home insurance policy it sold. The campaign was so warmly received by its customers that the insurer chose to extend the offer until the end of 2019.
To date the campaign has seen more than £325,000 donated to parish churches across the country. With this in mind Ecclesiastical has chosen to extend the offer once again hoping to see more churches benefit from the campaign.
The grants have already funded a variety of projects including the restoration of artwork, the installation of a new sound system and family fun days, as well as maintenance and repair projects.
Michael Angell, Church Operations Director at Ecclesiastical said: “I am delighted to announce that we are able to continue with our Trust 130 campaign for another year. For individual churches, even a small grant can make a huge difference. Anybody purchasing their home insurance from Ecclesiastical can nominate any Anglican church to receive a donation.”
The Trust130 campaign is part of Ecclesiastical’s commitment to donating £100m to good causes by the end of 2020. In August 2019, the firm announced that it had so far donated £70m of that total and is well on the way to hitting its 2020 target.
To take advantage of the scheme, direct home insurance customers simply have to quote Trust130 when they take out a new home insurance policy and name the Anglican Church they would like to receive the donation.
The Trust130 campaign will now run until 31 December 2020 and there is no limit to the number of individual donations a single church can receive. Full terms and conditions for the scheme can be found on the Ecclesiastical website: https://www.ecclesiastical.com/trust130/
