Hope Cove Lifeboat has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, thanks to nominations from local people. 

Hope Cove Lifeboat is one of 500 winners in the Movement for Good awards, which is organised by specialist insurer Church Matters with Ecclesiastical, who provide "specialist church insurance for church buildings and church people, as well as a range of expert guidance, advice and support". 
A spokesperson for HCL said: "To know we have such great support is a huge boost for everyone involved with the Life Boat. So we’d like to say a big thank you. Thank you to Ecclesiastical for the award. Thank you to Sarah Willoughby who first told us about the scheme and encouraged us to apply.
"And thank you to all of you for taking the time and effort to nominate us."
The award is worth £1,000 to the charity and is part of the more than £1million given to charities this summer.
Hope Cove Lifeboat was one of 500 charities chosen from more than 13,000 nominations. 
The Movement for Good awards are in their third year and winners are chosen at random, but the more times a charity is nominated, the more chance it has of being selected, so the support of local people to nominate the Hope Cove Lifeboat cannot be understated.

Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, says: “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."
