Pick Everard, the independent property, construction and infrastructure consultancy, has been supporting LandAid Charitable Trust over the last year and has raised a total of £2,597.42, for the homelessness charity.
Working with Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), LandAid has launched a Pledge150 initiative – a campaign to help end youth homelessness by providing 150 bed spaces for young people across the UK.
Paul Darlow, regional director at Pick Everard’s Bury St Edmunds office, said: “As an office, we have participated in monthly dress down Fridays, a Christmas quiz, office raffles and a fundraiser at Newmarket races, raising £772.42.
“Alongside this, 15 colleagues and I from our office took part in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge last year, walking 25 miles over Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent, a gruelling challenge that certainly tested our fitness. This raised a further £1,825.00 for the charity.”
LandAid is a property industry charity working to address youth homelessness in the UK. It brings together businesses and individuals from across the industry to support charities delivering life-changing projects for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness. It helps to fund projects which turn empty properties into homes for young people facing homelessness and provides them with valuable work experience opportunities.
Paul continued: “We are delighted to have been able to support the work of such a deserving charity and wish LandAid continued success with its Pledge150 and in all the great work it does.”
Pick Everard employs more than 500 staff across its 13 UK offices, providing a range of project, cost and design consultancy services.
