Fine & Country: Upmarket agency brand Fine & Country recognised its top fundraisers at its annuall international conference earlier this month, with Fine & Country Rugby received the Outstanding Contribution gong.
It was presented with the charitable accolade after an incredible year of philanthropy in 2022.
Fine & Country Midlands, consisting of several agencies in the region, contributed a staggering total amassing to almost £40,000 in 2022 – a feat accomplished through donating £100 per completion to The Foundation, plus additional vendor contributions.
The team also took part in a Tough Mudder race, with their fundraising contributing a further £1,000.
Of this collection of offices, Fine & Country Rugby were the highest contributor, donating £6,500 over the course of the past year and thus, the team walked away with the trophy.
The deserved runners up for The Foundation award were Fine & Country Olney, after director, Haydn van Weenen, organised and hosted a charity tennis tournament with the aim of raising money for the Ukraine Appeal.
More than £2,000 was raised.
Second runner up was Fine & Country North Suffolk, who continue to honour their pledge of £50 per completion across all locations for The Foundation, as well as supporting their local charity, The Benjamin Foundation.
There was also a silent auction held in honour of The Foundation, with a total of over £8,878 raised on the night in generous donations, covering everything from new ovens, towels, bedding, and food packages.
During 2023, The Foundation will continue to support charities and organisations fighting against homelessness and poverty, with the most recent donation of £10,000 going to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Turkey-Syria earthquake appeal.
The goal is for the network to be able to match the £10,000 and donate a total of £20,000 to the cause.
Jon Cooke, trustee of the Fine & Country Foundation, said: “At its core, the Foundation is about assisting those afflicted by poverty and homelessness, and right now thousands of people in Turkey and Syria have been displaced from their homes. While it will not provide a permanent solution, the £10,000 donated by the Foundation, as well as the additional money raised by the network, will help provide essentials such as food, shelter, and blankets to those who have lost everything.”
