Agents Do Charity - grassroot causes

Welcome to this week’s Agents Do Charity, our chance to salute those who do so much to help others.

If your agency is doing a little charitable something which we should bring to the attention of the industry, please email press@estateagenttoday.co.uk - and we’ll do the rest! 

Barratt London: Wellbeing centre Sydenham Garden has received a donation of £1,500 from local housebuilder Barratt London in a bid to boost access to gardens for mental health and wellbeing recovery. 


The housebuilder launched its nearby Bermondsey Heights development last year and has provided the charity with funds as part of its community fund scheme, which aims to improve the quality of life for those living in the local area. 

Beth Jaichand, director of Sydenham Garden, said: “At Sydenham Garden, we understand that speaking out about mental health worries can be difficult. Thank you to Barratt London for their donation, this will go towards buying equipment for our gardens as well as enabling our professional staff team to bring local people together to feel supported in a warm and inclusive environment.” 

Yolanda Jacob, sales and marketing director for Barratt East London, added: “Our Community Fund scheme is focused on supporting local organisations. The pandemic placed a large strain on many people’s mental health and highlighted just how important togetherness is. We are proud to be supporting Sydenham Garden, nearby to our Bermondsey Heights development. We hope this donation makes a real difference for all who benefit from the charity’s great work.”

Michael Tuck: Estate agency brand Michael Tuck is celebrating four decades in Gloucester by raising almost  £13,500 for the Sunflowers charity.

The team hosted a whopping 40 fundraising events throughout the year from belting out tunes with the Churchdown Male Voice Choir at Choir at the Docks to buzzing with activity at BeeFest.

Sunflowers Suicide Support works to bring light to those affected by suicide, offering bereavement support, training, and a helping hand in the community. Thanks to Michael Tuck’s incredible efforts, they’ll be able to continue their vital work, spreading sunshine one smile at a time.

Barratt David Wilson Homes: AFC Dunstable is kicking off the 2023/2024 season with a new partnership with Barratt David Wilson Homes.

The housebuilder, which is building at the nearby Linmere development in Houghton Regis, will sponsor the ladies first team’s home and away kits in their upcoming season. 

Sally Collins, head of ladies football at AFC Dunstable, said: “Our Ladies First Team always work incredibly hard in every season at the club. We were thrilled that Barratt David Wilson North Thames approached us about this partnership, and the ladies are very excited to wear their new and fresh kits with the badge of support from the housebuilder.

“It is fantastic to have the support of such a big local business not far from our training ground investing in a grassroots women’s football club, and we cannot wait to show off our new uniform. We welcome all support to our home matches at Creasey Park.”

Marc Woolfe, director of sales for Barratt David Wilson North Thames, said: “Women’s football has grown in interest massively over the past few years with England reaching the finals in the World Cup over the summer. 

“This momentous occasion will have hopefully inspired many young ladies and girls all across the UK to join football and at Barratt David Wilson North Thames, it is key that we feel as though we are doing our bit to help encourage women in the local area to strive for success in the sport. I hope the ladies enjoy their new home and away kits and good luck to them in the next few seasons.”
