Here is the latest set of exploits undertaken by our industry in the name of charity: it features golf, an alpine adventure, volunteering, and stories from the war.
We at EAT and LAT hugely admire the often-unsung work by agents who donate energy, time and money to charity. We want to shine a spotlight on this side of agency.

Here are this week's updates.
Get swinging for a good cause
The next charity golf day for estate and lettings agents across the UK is set to take place on 25th September at Donnington Valley Golf Club in Newbury.
Organisers Agents Giving need agents to pick up a club and get swinging for good causes. Agents Giving patron, property expert and TV presenter Phil Spencer, is dusting off his clubs to join the agents for the entire day.
The ever popular golf event, now in its fourth year, takes the format of an 18-hole team stableford competition.
The golf day is being sponsored by Hunters and Property Academy.

Waterfords estate agents make time to play
Following on from their recent volunteer days at Make a Wish Foundation and Frimhurst House, another group of helpers from Waterfords estate agents have donated a day. This time, a team of six went to the Pine Ridge Sure Start Children's Centre on the Old Dean estate in Camberley, transforming an unused play area back into a usable space.
The Sure Start Children's Centre in Camberley is a place that offers access to a range of support and outreach services for families with children under the age of five who have been identified as in need of them. The outdoor play area at the centre had become overgrown and the sandpit had gone mouldy, meaning that the children could no longer play there.
Welsh Conveyancer completes Alpine three peaks challenge
Convey Law's Geraint Aubrey has completed an Alpine three peak challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK.
He explained what the challenge involved: On day one, I climbed Monch which is 4,107m and returned to base camp at Monchshutte for the night. On day two, I traversed the Ewigschneefeld Glacier to get to the base of Gross Fiescherhorn. From there we climbed to the summit of Gross Fiescherhorn at 4,048 metres. On day three we attempted Jungfrau. After three hours of climbing we reached the Rottalsattel at 3,900m.
The whole experience has been fantastic and it has been great to raise so much money for this wonderful charity. Thank you to everyone who has or will make a donation. I am looking forward to next year's expedition.
Geraint's aiming to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research UK. Donate at www.justgiving.com/Geraint-Aubrey.
