Agents Giving launched the appeal with The Guild of Property Professionals last week, urging the property industry to join them in collecting funds to be able to send urgent live-saving supplies to those who have lost everything.
In the aftermath of the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake, thousands have been injured and displaced from their homes, desperate for essentials such as fresh water and food, as food stocks and supplies run low and many on the brink of starvation.
The money raised will support the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal.
