Yorkshire Cat Rescue wins £1,000 festive boost thanks to Ecclesiastical Insurance

Yorkshire Cat Rescue is one of 120 winning charities to receive a New Year gift of a £1,000 donation as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s fifth annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign. Members of the public were invited to nominate a charity to win a share of £120,000 and Yorkshire Cat Rescue was amongst the winners which were drawn at random.

The money will make a huge impact on the charity who have had a difficult few years after the Covid-19 pandemic. The money will be used to enable the charity to take in more cats and kittens and contribute towards the start of the year's vet bills. The charity spent £106,862 on vet bills last year.

Nicola Willis, a fundraiser for Yorkshire Cat Rescue says “Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time out to vote for us. It really will make a difference and has given us a massive boost for the start of 2022.”

Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said: “As a commercial company with a charitable purpose, giving back is at the heart of our business. In fact, Ecclesiastical is the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK*.

“We would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause as part of our annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign. 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.”
