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

Open Road 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.

Open Road will use the money to support our front line provision, supporting service users in their recovery journey. The money will support the delivery of recovery interventions in the community.

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

Sarah Wright, Chief Executive of Open Road said “We want to thank everyone who took the time to nominate and vote for Open Road. Open Road provides an invaluable service supporting individuals, families and communities to lead more meaningful lives.”

Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said:  “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.”
