Walk for Ella’s: The Women in Residential Property network is organising a charity walk in London on March 8 to raise funds for Ella’s which supports women who’ve been the victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation and to mark International Women’s Day.
Anyone can join the walk, but all participants will be required to make a £25 donation to Ella’s. If you’d like to register contact Emma Vigus, Chair of WIRP on firstname.lastname@example.org. The walk will start at 12.30pm at Liverpool Street station and will cover approximately 10 miles taking in many of London’s landmark buildings.
Emma Vigus says: “This is a great opportunity to raise funds for a fantastic charity and to make new connections in an informal setting. We are also walking to demonstrate our support for the International Women’s Day theme for 2022 which is to end violence against women. This is a topic that we’ve addressed at WIRP meetings and it’s one that will have touched the lives of many of our members both professionally and personally.
“The home is often the most dangerous place for victims of abuse with 75 per cent of women killed by their partner or ex-partner in England and Wales being killed in their own home. We hope that in supporting the IWD theme, we can encourage more people in the residential property industry to recognise the signs of domestic abuse and to think about how they may be able to support victims.”
Globe Primary Academy, Sussex: The Globe Primary Academy took part in a Valentine’s drawing competition with Jacobs Steel estate agents, the Sussex Advertiser reports.
Jacobs Steel gave the school a Hobbycraft voucher for art supplies, and Lancing branch manager Mel Daddow says: “We were blown away with the colourful creativity the children came up with. Their pictures look lovely in our window for Valentine’s week. I’d love a local developer to make one of these dream homes a reality.”
Iain Henderson, assistant head teacher at the school, adds: “We had over 100 fantastic dream home designs from across the school, making it a particularly difficult task for us to narrow it down to just 20 or so winners.”
Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society: Convey Law has donated over £3,000 to one of its conveyancers who has undertaken a charity challenge for national charity SANDS which supports families losing a baby.
The conveyancing practice pledged £1 for every 100 steps taken by conveyancer Lauren Forbes as she took on a personal challenge to take over 300,000 steps in a month.
She surpassed her total to take 310,000 steps, earning a donation of £3,100.
The funds were raised by the Convey Law team through their clients taking part in the Conveyancing Foundation’s Charity Lotto where clients of any legal practice or property company can donate a voluntary £10 at the end of their transaction, giving them a chance to win £500 in a monthly draw.
