It is encouraging people to nominate them to be in with a chance to win the sum as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards.

Bell View operations manager, Paul Harrison, said: “It literally takes seconds to nominate us online, remember our charity number is 1075896, spread the word that a vote for us would give our charity the best possible chance of winning.”

If selected they would spend the monies on services for older people, across rural north Northumberland, especially at this time of increased need.
