Thomas Morris Sales & Lettings have won a Agents Giving 2016 Fundraising Champion Award in the ‘Best Innovative and Creative Fundraising’ category.
At a glittering ceremony at the Lancaster Hotel in London, members of the Thomas Morris team collected the award as part of the proceedings during the Agents Giving Ball – a celebration of fundraising efforts from estate agents all around the country. ‘It really was a great night for everyone at Thomas Morris’ explained Area Manager Steve Thompson ‘Our staff have worked really hard to raise the profile and much needed funds for a number of local causes – particularly Magpas the emergency response charity which operates throughout our region’
The award was made not just in recognition of the actual money raised by Thomas Morris Sales & Lettings but also the involvement of the teams across the various branches and associated businesses such as Embrace Mortgage Services, Thomas Morris Property Management and Thomas Morris Conveyancing. The award was presented by TV presenter Phil Spencer.
The Agents Giving Ball also held a Strictly Agents Dancing competition, involving estate agents and industry suppliers from throughout the UK. 12 individuals, including Thomas Morris director Simon Bradbury battled it out on the dance floor and helped raise thousands of pounds for the Agents Giving charity in aid of the homeless and other worthy causes. ‘It was great fun…’ said Simon…and though we didn’t win we certainly enjoyed ourselves and we’re proud to have raised even more cash for such a great cause!’
During the evening, Agents Giving chairman Peter Knight announced that to date £1,004,230 for literally hundreds of different charities has been raised.
