Connells announce the total raised in 2017 for its chosen charity
National estate agency Connells is delighted to announce that the total amount raised in 2017 for its chosen charity, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is £3,496. To reach such a fantastic figure for the company’s yearly donation, staff have participated in various fundraising events including the annual Connells Partner’s Ball, branch bake sales and company dress down days. Connells Estate Agency Chief Executive David Plumtree recently presented the NSPCC with a cheque for the donation at Connells’ head office in Leighton Buzzard.
David Plumtree, Connells Group Estate Agency Chief Executive says: “We’re proud to have been supporting the NSPCC for more than 15 years now and I would like to thank all those who have been involved in fundraising for such a worthwhile cause over the last and previous years. The NSPCC’s work is so important to the lives of many children around the UK and we’re thrilled to be able to continue contributing in this way. “
The NSPCC is the UK’s leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. The charity runs a range of locally based services for children and families; campaigns to help change and improve the lives of children; runs a helpline for adults to call if they are concerned about a child; and provides ChildLine, the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people to call if they need help or advice.
Jacqui Venters, Community Fundraising Manager at the NSPCC says: “We are very grateful to Connells for this wonderful support. The NSPCC is here to help prevent abuse and neglect and donations like this help make that possible. On behalf of the charity and all of the children that will be helped I want to say a huge thank you to all of Connells’ employees and clients who have shown such fabulous support for many years.”
