By June 22, 2023No Comments

Friends of Carlisle Victorian and Turkish Baths (FCVTB) has won a £1,000 Movement for Good Award from Benefact Group thanks to nominations from the public.

FCVTB has been selected to receive a £1,000 donation as part of Benefact Group’s Movement for Good Awards, which is giving over £1million to charities for the fifth year running.

The £1,000 will help boost their efforts to reopen the baths as a community health and wellbeing centre.

Members of the public were invited to nominate good causes and winners, including FCVTB were drawn at random.

Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive at Benefact Group, said: “We would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause as part of our Movement for Good Awards. Benefact Group is the third largest corporate donor in the UK and has an ambition to be the biggest. Owned by a charity, all of its available profits go to good causes, and the more the Group grows, the more the Group can give. 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.”

The group will be applying for grants to fund the next stage of their viability study but need to fundraise 10% of any grants received.  You can help them achieve their goal by contributing to their JustGiving fundraising campaign.


Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group.
