Nicol & Co wins Fundraising Champion Award at national estate agents’ charity ball
A Midlands estate agent has won a top honour in the Fundraising Champion Awards presented at a national charity ball for estate agents.
Nicol & Co picked up the Special Fundraising Award at the Agents Giving event last Friday [24 September] in recognition of its commitment to donate £100 to charity from every completion on instructions received during the first lockdown.
The Special Fundraising Award was judged on “the person or company who consistently goes the extra mile and has shown extraordinary determination and motivation throughout the year in order to provide on-going support to their cause in whatever way they can”.
Michael Stoop, chairman of Agents Giving, says: “A huge congratulations to Nicol & Co for winning the Agents Giving Fundraising Champion Award 2021 for ‘Special Fundraising’.
“We have read about so many wonderful fundraising events and this once again highlights that so many estate agents are doing some fantastic charity, fundraising and community work during some challenging times.”
Nicol & Co shared the Special Fundraising Award with Arun Estates of Horsham, West Sussex
Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol & Co, which has branches in Droitwich Spa, Worcester and Malvern, said: “The line up in this category were all great firms and I was honoured that the Nicol & Co team won the award alongside Arun Estates.”
Mr Nicol explained that the company’s initiative had initially resulted in £700 going to Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Charity, which supports Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
Nicol & Co has since made further donations and decided to extend the idea by donating £100 to community organisations or charities nominated by their vendors.
Mr Nicol added: “For every sale we achieve on new instructions received this year we shall donate £100 of our fee to the school, food bank, community group, or local charity of our client’s choice.”
