Thousands of food parcels donated on Agents Giving Day

The industry came out in force to support their local foodbanks last week on Agents Giving Day.  There was great effort shown from agents up and down the country.

Agents were encouraged to help tackle hunger in their local communities by preparing a simple food parcel to donate to their local foodbank.  Agents collected thousands of essential food items and toiletries in their offices to make up food parcels and make the all-important delivery to the foodbanks.

Huge thanks goes to RAN who organized their ‪#OneThousandItemsofFood‪ ‪ collection via their member offices. Thanks to all agents involved, some of those included; Dawson’s Property, Pygott & Crone, JW Wood Group, Thomas Morris, Moginie James and Drivers and Norris.

Paramount showed their continued support to their local foodbank effort by collecting over 400 items to donate to the Brent foodbank.  Others included Heritage Estate Agents, Frank Shippers, Sealy Estates, MS Estates, Polecat Properties, Virtually Sold and Howie Kent & Co.

Peter Knight Chairman of Agents Giving comments; “We were thrilled with the number of agents collecting and donating food parcels for this Agents Giving Day, literally thousands of food items were collected and donated.  Thank you to all agents for their generosity, such an incredible job from all those involved.”

It’s not too late if you would like to collect and donate food items.

Find your local foodbank and see what items they require:
