EHB Residential assist local school with their Grow a Pound Initiative with the help of Agents Giving and Rightmove

The entrepreneurial skills of Leamington youngsters were put to the test to help raise funds for Milverton Primary School and came up with ingenious ideas of how they could generate money to invest in new computer equipment, they were given a helping hand by ehB Residential and Agents Giving.

The school launched the Grow a Pound initiative, which saw every child sent home with £1 and tasked to come up with ways to increase it.  ehB donated £320 towards the idea and then contacted the industry charity Agents Giving to see how they could help.

Agents Giving works with estate and letting agents and their suppliers across the UK to encourage, support and promote their fundraising activities with a Rightmove support grant to boost their funds and help with any set up costs.

Edward Bromwich, Managing Director of ehB Residential, said: “We have worked with Milverton Primary School for a number of years.  ehB is firmly rooted within the community, so it is important that we give something back and this was a fantastic way for pupils to get creative and have fun at the same time”.

“We were extremely pleased that Agents Giving could also get involved.  Pupils had one month to get to work, some planned bake sales, a sponsored cycling event, car washing and more.  “Funds raised are going towards the school’s computers and iPads for the classrooms”.

Matthew Fisher, Head Teacher at Milverton Primary School, added: “We would like to say a huge thank you to ehB Residential for their support and also Agents Giving.  The children had some brilliant ideas and raised £3424.45 in total”.

Michael Stoop, Director of Agents Giving, adds:

“Supporting local communities is why Agents Giving was set up. We support the industry through resources and grants, for example, the Rightmove fund, which helps raise even more funds for your charity or cause. Over the last three years, we have helped raise nearly over £2m for more than 100 charities. If you have a charity that you would like to help, get in contact and get involved.”
