December is here, Christmas in a few weeks. This is the time of year when charitable activities take centre stage.

But many agents do great charity work year-round and as you know, we like to champion those efforts, publicising the side of agency that gets little attention elsewhere.

We have had a tremendous response to Agents Do Charity over the past six months but now we'd like to extend the idea by asking you to submit emails outlining what your agency is doing, or by making your own video which we would run here on the Agents Do Charity section on Friday.

As ever, if you want to be mentioned, please let us know on press@estateagenttoday.co.uk.

In the meantime, here are this week's updates.

Agents' Giving/Agency Express Soapbox Challenge: On June 27 2015 at the Penn House estate in Buckinghamshire, Agency Express will be throwing down the gauntlet to clients, peers and friends in a fast-paced charity fundraiser. Soapbox teams are invited to build, design and race the ultimate gravity-powered soapbox kart. Fantastic fun and really challenging. Full details on www.agencyexpress.co.uk/soapbox


Griffin Foundation Trust: Alan Webb, managing director of Griffi Residential agency, along with trustees Simon Windham and Ashley Froment have created a charity supporting the people of Thurrock. It's just about to enter its second application phase for grants, based on raising in excess of £16,000 through donations from staff, tradesmen landlords and other clients.

Art For Youth: Carter Jonas has celebrated its first anniversary at One Chapel Place, London W1 with a sale of 'limited editions and one-offs' in aid of Art for Youth, a fundraising initiative of charity UK Youth. One at One ('one year at One Chapel Place') featured the work of five award-winning artists, all linked to Art for Youth through previous support.

Artists included painters Ann Hawksley, Soraya French and Lucy Ash, sculptor Dee Stanford and etcher Karen Keogh. The collection of nineteen works included colourful paintings and etchings depicting city scenes and bold wooden and metal sculptures. A proportion of the money raised from the sale of the art works went towards funding projects run by UK Youth that help young people develop the practical skills necessary to receive training and ongoing employment.


Trussell Trust/Number 5 Project: Curchods IS collecting food from staff and the public for local food bank charities run by the Trussell Trust and for the Number 5 Project in Guildford. Please bring any non-perishable food that you feel you can spare into our offices by December 20 so that we can all help our local Foodbank charities thrive this Christmas says the agency. The Trussell Trust has foodbanks around Surrey, in Elmbridge, Runnymede, Woking and Kingston-upon-Thames.

Our offices in Guildford and the surrounding area will be giving the food collected to the Number 5 Project which is a homeless shelter in Guildford town centre the agency has told EAT. The local Curchods office is based at 4 London Rd, Guildford, Surrey GU1 2AF.
