Over the last few months UK property industry charity Agents Giving has had a fantastic response to its Winter Coat Drive which has seen the collection of more than 100 bags full of unwanted coats which have been donated to homeless charities throughout the UK. However, the charity is continuing to push for agents to keep on collecting for their local community.
Peter Knight, the Chairman 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 nights the temperature drops still 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 estate agency in Hampstead, adds: “When we received the call out in November for unwanted coats, we immediately jumped on it. 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, clients and our local MP, Tulip Saddiq, we have collected bags of coats for Brent Food Bank and Ashford Place. It was a simple request, but it has had a domino effect.”
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 and CJ Hole have all joined in, collecting coats for charities including, Calling London, Launchpad Reading and YMCA.
