Peter Knight, Chairman of Agents Giving, comments: “There have been so many wonderful fundraising stories and charity events this year which, once again, highlights the great work that agents and suppliers are doing in their communities. Our Fundraising Champions don’t necessarily raise the most money or do the craziest challenges – sometimes it’s the personal nature of the fundraising or support that makes it so special. We would like to thank all the agents and suppliers who entered the awards this year, good luck to those who have made the shortlist!”

Luke Jones


Luke Jones of Fresh Start Properties in Bridge End. Luke has undertaken two huge challenges, running the equivalent of 5 marathons in 5 days from Hollyhead to Cardiff] and at the end of August he undertook the 5 Peaks Challenge.



Premier Lettings – Bath. In a scheme to raise money for the school, each child was given a pound to “grow”. 329 children took part and that £329 was grown in to over £5,000! The children held a huge range of activities from pop-up markets, a dog show, a mini football academy, a shoe cleaning business and a guess the name of a teddy bear completion. The average raised per child in the three months was £17, a return on investment that I think we would all be happy with!



Inspired by Managing Director, Peter Grant’s wife, Claire, a brave cancer fighter, VTUK have raised over £40,000 for two cancer charities. They have worn pink, they have taken part in extreme obstacle course, cycled from London to Paris, organised a charity ball and most recently, organised a chilli eating competition. Cleary fundraising has become an important part of what VTUK does and acknowledge that not only does it benefit the charities that they are supporting, but make them a better company and better people.


Avery Team Agents Giving Award

Avery Estate Agents organised a charity ball to raise money for an incubator unit for their local special care baby unit. They raised enough money to buy two – and are still going strong. Event with an ambitious fundraising target, the commitment was so strong that they doubled that target… and aren’t about to stop any time soon!
