Estate agents Leaders hosts Festive Friday fundraiser and reaches its £50,000 fundraising target for charity.

National estate agency Leaders recently held a successful Christmas fundraiser in aid of children’s hospice charity Together for Short Lives, helping it reach its £50,000 target for the year.

The property specialist, which has 123 branches across the UK, invited staff to dress down in Christmas jumpers on Friday December 15 in exchange for a charitable donation as part of its Festive Friday celebration. Staff also organised raffles, quizzes and cake sales to generate funds for the good cause.

Leaders raised thousands on the day and has now passed £50,000 of fundraising for Together for Short Lives in 2017.

Allison Thompson, managing director at Leaders, said: “Festive Friday has become a tradition at Leaders and it was fantastic to once again see so many of our staff dust off their Christmas jumpers and find different ways to raise money for a wonderful cause.

Having worked with the charity since 2015, we know exactly how important donations are and the difference this money will make to children living with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

“I would like to congratulate all our employees for the imaginative ways they have found to raise money over the year and for all the hard work they have put in.”
