Nystagmus Network wins £1,000 Movement for Good award

Nystagmus Network wins £1,000 Movement for Good award

The Nystagmus Network has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group thanks to nominations from the public.

The Nystagmus Network is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer.

Although at least 1 in 1,000 people live with nystagmus, when someone is diagnosed it’s usually the first time they have heard of it. This can be a very anxious experience, especially when doctors don’t have the time to explain the full implications of the condition, which is very complex, or how it may affect the sight and offer sources of further information or support.

The £1,000 Movement for Good donation to the Nystagmus Network will pay for a year’s supply of nystagmus leaflets or postcards for eye clinics around the UK. This means that, at the point of diagnosis, patients and their families will be signposted to the charity for information and support, welcomed to the nystagmus community and be able to ask all their burning questions – and, most importantly, understand the answers!

Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. Over 13,000 charities were nominated by more than 210,000 members of the public.

Sue Ricketts, Executive Information and Development Manager at the Nystagmus Network says: “As a small charity supporting a big nystagmus community, the Nystagmus Network is grateful to each and every person who nominated us for this donation.”

Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, says: “We would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause as part of our Movement for Good awards. Ecclesiastical, the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK, 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. We know that £1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work that charities do and we’re looking forward to seeing how this financial boost will change lives for the better.”
