Trust130 is very simple...For every new home insurance policy taken out by anyone with Ecclesiastical they offer to donate £130 to an Anglican church or cathedral of the policyholder’s choice . While a donation of £130 may not sound like a lot, churches and congregations who have embraced Trust 130 , have used the donations to fund all sorts of things for their church for example structural repairs; new noticeboards; family BBQ and fun days or just to help balance the books.
