As a charity supporting health and wellbeing, Northamptonshire Health Charity has an amazing opportunity to be awarded a £5,000 Movement for Good grant. The independent charity supports three local NHS Trusts – Northampton General Hospital (NGH), Kettering General Hospital (KGH) and the Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT). They do this by providing funding for equipment and projects to enhance patient care and staff wellbeing and they need the help of their supporters to be in with a chance of winning one of the ten £5,000 awards.

The Movement for Good Awards is an annual programme of giving, set up by all the specialist financial services companies that make up the Benefact Group. It provides them an opportunity to make a tangible difference to the lives of the people and communities they serve, by supporting the charities, not-for-profit organisations, and community interest projects that mean something to you. Yet again this year they are donating more than £1 million to charities.

In addition to offering charities the chance to win a £1,000 donation, Benefact Group are holding four special draws throughout the year giving charities a one-week window to be nominated for the higher £5,000 grant. Each special draw will focus on a specific type of cause, such as Animal and Wildlife for the first draw and the current Health and Wellbeing draw.
