Agents Do Charity - and we’re getting ready to r-r-r-rumble again!

It’s a great sign of our slow but reassuring return to normality when much-missed fundraising events make a welcome comeback - and that’s exactly what we have this week.

But before we reveal more, a reminder to let us know your fund-raising exploits. Just email press@estateagent today.co.uk and we’ll tell the industry.

Now, seconds away! No hitting below the belt…

Cherry Lodge Cancer Care: It’s Back - Landlord Action has announced that its charity white collar boxing event, ‘Rumble with the Agents’, will return on December 9. 

The event, sponsored by the Hamilton Fraser Group which will be celebrating its 25-year anniversary, will be raising funds for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet, an independent charity committed to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, their carers, family and friends. 

To date, ‘Rumble with the Agents’ events, run by Paul Shamplina and his wife Rita, have raised in excess of £100,000 for various charities.

As in previous years, participants from the property industry do not require existing experience as they are provided with a fully structured and supervised boxing training program to teach the correct techniques and ensure optimum physical fitness. Several boxers are already signed up and ‘Rumble with the Agents’ is looking to fill the remaining places before training commences in the autumn. 

The event, comprising five fights, a sit down three-course meal, charity auction and raffle, celebrity guests and DJ, is open to all property professionals (agents, suppliers and landlords) who wish to take part, attend or simply donate.  The event will be held on December 9 at Holiday Inn, Avenue Banqueting, 58 Regents Park Road, London, N3 3JN. 

“I know I’ve had more comebacks than Frank Sinatra but, at the age of 50, I’m going to put myself in the ring once more. Cherry Lodge is a fantastic charity, and I want to do everything I can to get behind them” adds Paul.

Working as a team, it will take up to 18 hours to cross the Channel with swimmers taking one-0hour shifts in turn. The team is raising funds for Aspire who helped in Paula’s recovery after a road accident left her badly paralysed. She is planning to swim the Channel as part of a relay team of six who will take turns to swim for an hour each.

Devon Freewheelers: Estate agent staff working for Hall & Scott in Ottery St Mary have chosen the Devon Freewheelers as the branch’s charity of the year.

The biking Freewheelers offer a free blood delivery service, supporting the NHS.

Hall & Scott’s Elliott Jeffery says: “We have been talking about making Devon Freewheelers our charity of the year for a while because of the service they provide for the community. It’s been a little bit more limited, what we can do – because of Covid – but we have some events in the pipeline and some social media campaigns planned.”
