Community Fundraising at Woodford Green

Community Fundraising at Woodford Green

28 September 2021

On the 15th September our Woodford Green branch completed 211 laps of the local pond, which equated to a marathon, in support of one of our sellers.

In 2013, Herman and Jenine found their new home through us and they loved their experience so much that they returned for us to help sell it, eight years on!

Steve, the Branch Manager, found out Herman and Jenine have an 8-year-old daughter in need of a lot of extra help and who uses the local hospice, Haven House, for extra care and support.

Jenine is running the London Marathon on the 3rd October and, with a fundraising target of £2,500, the Woodford Green office came together to complete their own fundraising challenge around the pond, asking locals to donate to her JustGiving page.

By the end of the day, there were some very tired estate agents in Woodford but the online donations had reached the incredible target of £2,500 with even more to pay in from offline donations!

Jenine came to the branch and did an honorary lap with our agents. She even brought in some sugary doughnuts which were hugely welcomed after those many, many laps!!

Douglas Allen presented Jenine with a cheque for £600. We really did run laps around the fundraising target… pun intended!

All of us here wish her the very best of luck for her marathon and we were pleased to be able to help one of our customers and support a local charity.

Here at Douglas Allen, we are more than just estate agents, we are a family.
