Leicestershire estate agents' sweet Easter fundraiser
Five of our Leicestershire estate agency teams are ‘chocs away’ with a tasty fundraiser for local homelessness project One Roof Leicester.
The Leicester, Wigston, Syston, Groby and Enderby offices of Harrison Murray are raffling chocolate bouquets in-branch to raise cash for the charity.
It’s a sweet starter to a working relationship that, later in the year, will also see staff visit a couple of One Roof’s premises to help with a gardening project.
Jennie Andrews, senior residential manager at Harrison Murray in Wigston and Syston, said: “Harrison Murray has long had a reputation for getting involved in positive work in the community and when we heard about One Roof there was an obvious and natural fit - we are extremely proud to link up with them.
“We are getting things underway with the chocolate bouquet raffles, which will run between now and Easter, and we are sure local people will give very generously to such a good cause.
“However, long-term we are looking for the link-up to truly blossom. Whilst the funds we raise over Easter will be very important to One Roof we want this to be an even more tangible relationship that sees us getting involved in helping them make the difference to homeless people that they do on an ongoing basis, including in the form of volunteering some of our time.”
One Roof manager Salma Ravat added: “It is fabulous of Harrison Murray to step up and offer this support and we are really proud to be working with such a strong local brand that prides itself on its community work.
“We are looking forward to the relationship going from strength to strength and it being a positive boost to our work in helping homeless people in Leicester.”
