Estate Agents practise their best swing in aid of good causes

Agents Giving calls for industry participation

Calling all potential Bubba Watsons! It’s that time of year again. The call goes out to UK agents whose swing might not be as perfect as the Master’s winner, but whose ambition is to raise money for Agents Giving. On the 21st May  Agents Giving is hosting its charity golf day in Cheshire*where estate agents across the UK get together and raise money for good causes while perfecting their game.

Agents and suppliers to the industry, who have signed up so far, include LSL Property Services, Reeds Rains, Your Move, Gascoigne Halman, myhomemove, Reapit, Ravensworth and Atlas Displays and there has already been extensive industry sponsorship**.

Charity prizes awarded on the day are for: the top three highest scoring teams; longest drive; nearest the pin and best-dressed. The accolade of ‘worst drive’ will also be awarded and there will be a ‘beat-the-pro’ competition to top things off. Further funds will be raised during the evening through a charity auction.

Last year the Agents Giving event raised in excess of £3,500 for good causes.

Peter Knight, Chairman at Agents Giving commented: “This is one of the key fundraising events in our calendar and we naturally hope to top last year’s fundraising. For any agents out there who still want to sign up for what will, as ever, prove to be a fun-filled day, space is going fast so you need to get in there quickly.”

For further information on how to participate in this year’s event please contact the Fundraising Team on info@agentsgiving.org or 01372 370895.
