PIPS Hope and Support is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.

Padraig Harte, PIPS Hope and Support’s Fundraising Coordinator is encouraging everyone to take 30 seconds out of their day to vote for PIPS Hope and Support and to urge their family and friends to do the same. 



“PIPS Hope and Support, as many people know relies heavily on fundraising and donations,” he told Newry Times. 

“Unfortunately, many of our fundraising events for the year have been postponed or cancelled, putting a significant financial strain on the organisation and the services we may be able to deliver in the future. 

“We would love for the community to get behind this initiative and cast their vote online for PIPS Hope and Support. 

“This prize is an opportunity for PIPS Hope and Support to begin to recover donations lost due to the current pandemic.

“We also take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported our charity to date,” he added.

Mark Hews, Group CEO of Ecclesiastical, said, “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards for the second year running.



“The coronavirus is having a major impact on charities and many are facing financial difficulties.

“Our Movement for Good awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.”
