Tees Valley Rural Action is calling on supporters to get behind its bid to win a £1,000 boost as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s annual 12 days of giving Christmas campaign.
The specialist insurer will be giving 120 different charities an early Christmas gift of a £1,000 donation, with 10 winners announced each weekday from 5 to 20 December.
It’s quick and easy to nominate Tees Valley Rural Action online. Nominations are open from 5 November to 19 December and you can vote for Tees Valley Rural Action at www.ecclesiastical.com/12days
Winners will be drawn at random and the more times Tees Valley Rural Action is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
Tees Valley Rural Action’s volunteers are vital to our community transport services, this funding would ensure we could support more volunteers which in turn would help and support more vulnerable residents across Tees Valley to access hospital appointments and social activities that would otherwise be socially isolated and lonely. Both our community transport services are delivered by a team of enthusiastic and passionate volunteers, who are all fully trained and support by TVRA. #driveforwardteesvalley
