Over the last two months colleagues across Ashdown Phillips have taken part in series of fundraising events, raising a total of £6,948.66 to help young people in the UK.
During September, our shopping centres and offices took part in One Great Day, raising money for children’s charities across the UK. Throughout the month, sites came up with a variety of creative ways to encourage donations, from talent shows to treasure hunts and fitness challenges to sponsored job swaps, leading to a fundraising total of £5,669.66 across Ashdown Phillips.
This October saw us lace up our trainers to take part in LandAid's Steptober challenge for the second year running, clocking up an incredible 3,763,888 steps and raising £1,309.00 for the appeal, which aims to end youth homelessness in the UK.
Split into teams of four, those taking part competed against each other and companies from across the property industry to see who could complete the most steps and raise the most money for their efforts throughout the two weeks of the appeal. Never ones to shy away from a challenge, our teams racked up the steps and miles with lunchtime walks, mountain hikes and by taking advantage of the many flights of stairs in their buildings!
A big thank you to all who took part in the fundraising events and to everyone who donated.
