Great North Run Challenge for Newcastle Property Agency

Newcastle-based property consultants, Walton Robinson, are working with Agents Giving to raise money on behalf of local charity St Oswald’s Hospice which provides specialist palliative care to adults and children in the North East of England. Five staff members from Walton Robinson are taking on The Great North Run this September and aiming to raise at least £1,500 for the hospice.

The property agency has organised several fundraising activities including bag packing at a local ASDA supermarket, a pub quiz, office raffles, a World Cup sweepstake and a big office bake-off. Thanks to donations from local businesses and a grant from Agents Giving, Walton Robinson is well on the way to hitting their fundraising target.

Anna Smith who is a Marketing Assistant at Walton Robinson and one of the runners taking part in the Great North Run said; “Fundraising for St Oswald’s Hospice is always a pleasure, we’ve seen the work their hardworking team do and it truly is invaluable to the local community. As well as knowing we’re donating to a great cause, the activities we’ve organised have also been a lot of fun and it has been fantastic for team building.

“Agents Giving have been pivotal in our aim to reach our £1,500 target and their grant has enabled us to take our fundraising to the next level, we wouldn’t have been able to pull off such a big event as the pub quiz without them. We have also had lots of help from the team at St Oswald’s, who have provided us with everything from fundraising tips to balloons and posters.”

If you would like to help Walton Robinson hit their target you can donate by visiting their JustGiving page or texting WRWR55 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070.
