Estate agents’ sweet Easter fundraiser

Harrison Murray, Enderby branchAn Enderby estate agent has joined four other Leicestershire estate agency teams who are ‘chocs away’ with a tasty fundraiser for local homelessness project One Roof Leicester.

Harrison Murray Estate Agency (part of The Nottingham) in Enderby has joined the Leicester, Wigston, Syston and Groby offices of the company with raffling chocolate bouquets in-branch to raise cash for the charity.

It’s a sweet starter to a working relationship that, later in the year, will also see Harrison Murray staff visit a couple of One Roof’s premises to help with a gardening project.

Jennie Andrews, senior residential manager at Harrison Murray in Wigston and Syston, said:

“Harrison Murray has long had a reputation for getting involved in positive work in the community and when we heard about One Roof there was an obvious and natural fit – we are extremely proud to link up with them.

“We are getting things underway with the chocolate bouquet raffles, which will run between now and Easter, and we are sure local people will give very generously to such a good cause.

“However, long-term, we are looking for the link-up to truly blossom. Whilst the funds we raise over Easter will be very important to One Roof we want this to be an even more tangible relationship that sees us getting involved in helping them make the difference to homeless people that they do on an ongoing basis, including in the form of volunteering some of our time.”

One Roof manager Salma Ravat added:

“It is fabulous of Harrison Murray to step up and offer this support and we are really proud to be working with such a strong local brand that prides itself on its community work.

We are looking forward to the relationship going from strength to strength and it being a positive boost to our work in helping homeless people in Leicester.”

Last Wednesday, 16th September, doors opened to the latest branch of Harrison Murray (part of the Nottingham Building Society) further strengthening the offering of one of the region’s largest estate agencies.

One of ten Harrison Murray branches across Leicestershire, the relocated office has a modern new look that has proved popular with people in the village since opening in mid-August.

As reported in the EYE last week, the estate agency’s Senior Residential Manager Teana Hampson and her team invited members of the public to visit the King Street branch to meet them and see the new premises and ask any property related questions they may have.

Those attending were able to mingle with VIP guest the Chairman of Enderby Parish Council, Mrs Sylvia Conway.

There was also free food and drink on offer and for younger visitors, a special visit in the form of The Nottingham’s mascot Robin Hood together with face painting.

Teana said:

“It’s fantastic to be in a new-look, modernised office right at the heart of Enderby. Many people in the village have already said they think it brings an added touch of style to the high street.

“We wanted to celebrate being so well received by holding a relaxed event that allowed people to have a drink and bite to eat on us whilst finding out more about our services and asking us any property-related questions they had.”

Harrison Murray Estate Agency Area Manager Tim MacIntosh added:

“We are the ‘one stop shop’ for clients as we not only help people to buy and sell property but also offer conveyancing, mortgages, lettings and even advice on home insurance and financial planning.

“Just as important as the expertise and products we offer is the excellent customer service and community engagement we pride ourselves on. This event was the latest example of that ethos.”

The estate agents and valuers, based on King Street in Enderby, have sponsored the club, coached by Richard Gillatt. Branch manager Sara Quartermass told local media via the company blog:

“This was an opportunity to truly get involved in the local community, and one we simply couldn’t pass on.

“We applaud everyone involved in running such an excellent club and for giving so many youngsters the opportunity to join in something they obviously feel passionate about.”

Coach Richard added:

“We are very grateful to Sara and Harrison Murray for their generous sponsorship – the boys love the new kit and are very proud when playing in it.”
