Your nominations really counted

MHRPS has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award thanks to nominations from the public.

MHRPS 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.

Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. MHRPS was one of 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.

MHRPS really appreciate the nominations for this award. We are significantly dependent on donations and legacies to generate the funds needed to achieve our aims – to preserve, maintain and operate a heritage railway for the enjoyment and education of the general public. This donation will be used to good purpose in developing a Young Operators Scheme for young people to become involved in maintaining our railway heritage. 

The group chief executive at Ecclesiastical mentioned that as a company the purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society and charitable giving is at the heart of their business. £1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work that charities do and they are looking forward to seeing how the financial boost will change lives for the better.
