Richmond charity Just the Job is seeking nominations people to give them a chance of winning £1,000.

The charity is hoping to win the funding in awards run by specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good.

The charity works with adult with disabilities to achieve their potential by doing work in the community.

It would purchase tablets to help team members stay connected during these difficult times if it won.

Manager Steve Biggs Manager said: “It is difficult at the moment to keep everyone connected and involved as much as we would like.

“A tablet for those team members who don’t have any devices would be a big help to those who can’t access our online activities.

“The tablets will of course also be big help in the future once we are back to more normal services.”

Mark Hews, group CEO of Ecclesiastical, said: “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.”

Winners will be drawn at random and the more times Just the Job is nominated the more chance it has of being selected. [kofi]
