We would like to say a big thank you to Kinleigh, Folkard and Hayward(KFH) for their fantastic support of Housing for Women, most recently with a donation of £25,000 towards our supported projects.
KFH had a huge team of over 70 runners in the London Estate Agents 10k race where we had over 130 estate agency staff in total. As well as doing a fantastic job running, the team managed to collectively raise £12,500 which has then been generously matched by the company to result in a donation of £25,000 towards our work supporting the most vulnerable of women and children in London.
Leading the charge at the 10k run for KFH was Leigh Munday, Sales Manager at its Clapham Common branch, who finished in a time of 50:52. He competed alongside his fellow colleagues, as well as runners from other London estate agencies and employees at Housing for Women.
Lee Watts, Managing Director at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward, comments: “We have been working with Housing for Women since early 2014, and took part in the charity run last year raising over £10,000. Many of our staff members got behind the cause, with more than 70 opting to run, and the rest helping to raise funds for their colleagues, as well as through a number of other initiatives, including a cake sale and dress-down Friday at head office.”
“The outcome has been phenomenal, with our staff helping to raise over £12,000, which the company then matched, helping to raise a grand total of £25,000 for Housing for Women.
“Feedback from our team of runners was once again highly positive – they had a great time, and really enjoyed doing their bit for those less fortunate.”
Jakki Moxham, Chief Executive at Housing for Women, said: “This was a fantastic effort and we really appreciate the support from all the KFH runners, their sponsors and from the company who generously matched the funds raised. £25,000 will enable us to make a big difference to the lives of vulnerable woman and their children in London. We really value our relationship with KFH and are extremely grateful for their ongoing support of our work.”
Since KFH started fundraising for Housing for Women they have raised nearly £40,000. We are extremely grateful for this support and look forward to continuing the relationship.
