Record-breaking year for the partnership
Local estate agency Bagshaws Residential is proud to have helped raise a record-breaking £18,605 in 2016 for its chosen charity, CLIC Sargent - the UK’s leading charity for children and young people with cancer and their families. As part of the national estate agency network Sequence, Bagshaws Residential has been supporting CLIC Sargent since 2001 and, after raising more money this year than any other year before, has now raised in excess of £390,000 over the course of the partnership.
Sequence’s fundraising efforts in 2016 have included everything from personal challenges like the London Marathon, skydives and the Prudential Ride London to fun staff initiatives including branch bake sales and dress down days, a MINI bike raffle, a football tournament and the company’s annual Partner’s Ball. Many branches also got involved in the much-loved Christmas Jumper Day, which this year raised a staggering £1,500 alone.
David Plumtree, Group Estate Agency Chief Executive at Sequence says: “Our partnership with CLIC Sargent is really valuable to us and we all thoroughly enjoy fundraising year after year for such a worthwhile cause. The work they do in the fight for young lives against cancer is so important and we’re extremely proud to be able to contribute to and be a part of that. We’re donating such an impressive amount to CLIC Sargent this year and look forward to an even bigger year of fundraising in 2017.”
Catherine Cadman, Fundraising Manager at CLIC Sargent comments: “Everyone at Sequence has surpassed themselves this year with this impressive sum of funds raised. It is so amazing to see the partnership go from strength to strength. Thank you very much as always to all the employees for joining CLIC Sargent in the fight for young lives against cancer. We want young cancer patients to thrive, not just survive, and with your support, you’re helping us to do that. Here’s to the year ahead!”
When cancer strikes young lives, CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage it causes beyond their health. They provide specialist support, to help and guide each young cancer patient and their family. They fight tirelessly for them, individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things. For more information please visit www.clicsargent.org.uk/
