Belvoir smashes it’s charity target.

8 03 2012

One year after announcing a charity fundraising drive, national property lettings specialist, Belvoir, has smashed its original target and raised over £16,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Belvoir, which has a local office on 248 High Street in Tunstall, originally set a goal of £10,000 when it launched its campaign with a “Go Green Day‟ on 1 February 2011. But it achieved that figure within the first seven months and spurred on by this success, the company has renewed its commitment to the charity and will continue to raise funds, via a wide range of events and activities, for a further year.

“I am incredibly proud that Belvoir‟s UK wide offices have achieved so much for Macmillan,” says Dorian Gonsalves, chief executive officer of the company.

“Macmillan is a fantastic charity, which helps so many people and is well known to all our franchise owners, as well as landlords and tenants, who have been extremely generous in their support. The campaign has united Belvoir offices across the UK and enabled us to work towards a common goal.”

Amongst the range of inventive, challenging and often humorous money-spinning activities undertaken by Belvoir offices were sponsored sky dives, a 10k road race, charity golf tournaments, bike rides and a sponsored silence.

Alejandra Garcia, who owns the Belvoir franchise in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, added ”After researching a number of different charities it was agreed that Macmillan would be Belvoir‟s charity of the year.
“We are delighted with the level of support which has been generated and look forward to continuing the relationship with Macmillan for a further year.”
