Agents Do Charity - as we head into autumn (ugh...)

Schools going back, final Bank Holiday over until Christmas, and agents returning from their summer breaks. It can only mean September.

Our latest heroes are name-checked below - don’t forget to join them if you’re raising funds, by emailed us at press@estateagenttoday.co.uk.


Now, on with this week’s news...

Mumbles: Dawsons Estate Agents has continued its long-standing sponsorship of the Cracker 7s in the Mumbles. There was a £300 prize on offer for the winners. 

Partner James Dawson says: “It’s been a pleasure to be associated with the Cracker 7s both as a sponsor and someone who played in the event in my younger years. It has been firmly established as one of the village’s main social events in the calendar along with such things as the Mumbles Raft Race.”


Great Glen Challenge: CKD Galbraith’s staff members have conquered yet another test of physical and mental stamina in the RSABI Great Glen Challenge.

The Great Glen Challenge is just one of many such events the firm has taken part in over recent months, with several teams having competed in the Lanrick Challenge, which saw them take home the winner's trophy, and six colleagues having also conquered one of Scotland's most gruelling endurance events, The Caledonian Challenge back in June.

So far this year the firm's efforts have raised well over £4,000 for a number of important charities such as the RSABI, Foundation Scotland, Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) and The Sandpiper Trust.

The Great Glen Challenge was set up five years ago to raise much need funds for the Scottish rural charity RSABI. The charity provides financial assistance, support and advice to those people who have worked in Scotland in land-based occupations and who are suffering hardship. Every year RSABI helps hundreds of people with backgrounds in farming, crofting, forestry, horticulture, fish-farming, gamekeeping and rural estate work who, due to illness, disability, poverty or crisis, find that they are unable to cope.

Leeds Foster Care Association:  Manning Stainton is fostering strong links with groups and organisations across West and North Yorkshire through its Community Support Programme. The latest to benefit is the Leeds Foster Care Association (LFCA) who received a donation of £300 from the Garforth and Crossgates branches of the area’s leading estate agent towards the cost of its annual summer fair.
