Agents Giving Call for Agents to Donate their Unwanted Coats to Charity

Last winter UK property industry charity Agents Giving had a fantastic response to its Winter Coat Drive, which saw the collection of more than 100 bags full of unwanted coats which were then donated to homeless charities throughout the UK.  The charity is continuing to push for agents to keep on collecting for their local communities now the weather is getting colder.

Michael Stoop Director of Agents Giving, explains: “We have had a fantastic response to the Winter Coat Drive with property agents and experts alike collecting coats for those in need. Most winter nights the temperature will drop below zero, and the vulnerable are in desperate need for insulation to keep warm, which is why we are continuing to push for agents to keep on collecting coats and donating.”

Spencer Lawrence of Paramount in West Hampstead adds: “It’s such a simple job but it has a huge impact for those in need, especially during the cold nights. Thanks to our staff and clients we collected bags of coats for Wrap Up London.  It is a simple request, but it has had a domino effect and we plan to collect even more coats this year.”

As part of the drive Agents Giving has been asking their supporters to send tweets and email images of their collections, companies including Chestertons, Embrace Mortgage Services, Paramount, CJ Hole and @PropertymarkUK have all joined in, collecting coats for charities including, Calling London, Launchpad Reading and YMCA.

Also don’t forget you local foodbank this winter – Agents Giving are proud to support The Trussell Trust, the UK Foodbank Network to help tackle poverty in the UK.  Agents Giving have this year been encouraging agents nationwide to support their local foodbanks.  You can donate a food parcel, donate your coats, fundraise for them or volunteer your time this winter.

A further festive initiative is being carried out by Agents Giving Partner Ravensworth, who is donating 10% of all its Christmas card sales to Agents Giving; a generous contribution which will help Agents Giving with its charitable activities in the New Year.
