It’s that time of the week where, despite stamp duty buying surges and the beginning of the traditional spring sales season, agents demonstrate they always have time to do great work for charity.

London Play: JLL’s Canary Wharf branch is sponsoring two go-karts in London Play’s Girl-Kart Build and Race event. Supported by female former F1 test driver Susie Wolff, 13 teams of young women and girls will gather at Mudchute Farm near Canary Wharf - and each will be given a pile of wood, wheels, some metal bits, and a few tools. The teams will be given four hours to build a go-kart from scratch and, then, they will race them.
As well as donating £250 per go-kart, a team from JLL’s residential agency business will also be in attendance on the day to help participate in the building process.
Some of the participants will never have picked up a hammer before, while others will have rarely ventured beyond their postcode; London Play was founded to address the problem of an increasing number of children being denied the space and time to play due to financial or social circumstances, disabilities, or discrimination.
Oswestry Sports: David Wilson Homes has given £500 to Dragon Academy Football Club, Oswestry Netball Club and Oswestry Olympians. The donation has been divided between the three clubs to fund new kit for the teams.
Steve Barton, Senior Sales Manager at David Wilson Homes Mercia, says: “We’re delighted to have been able to contribute to the community in Oswestry by providing this donation to the sports clubs and it is fantastic that three teams have benefited from our support.”
And Andy Poole, a coach at Dragon Football Academy, says: “We want as many youngsters as possible to take part in sport and with costs ever increasing it makes a real difference to be able to provide the children in our under nine team with new kit. Members of Oswestry Netball Club and Oswestry Olympians are also delighted with their new kit.”
