We have already donated £77,081.49. By the end of 2020 we would like to donate £100,000 for both local and nationwide charities.
Prospect Estate Agency understands that each of its offices become a part of the local community. This is why we’re so passionate about Prospect Foundation.
Prospect Foundation is a core piece of the Prospect Family! It’s the arm of the business that is all about giving back and supporting the local community and although it doesn’t make us money, it’s one of the most important pieces of the Prospect puzzle.
From supporting school fetes in our local communities, to making donations for worthy causes, to helping promote charity events and even sponsoring the first ever triplets to participate in the same triathlon for Team GB, Prospect gets excited about giving back and playing it’s part in helping the local community grow.
Below are just some of the examples of how Prospect Foundation has helped support the local community over the years.
On Friday 5th June, Prospect Estate Agency's employees will be singing their hearts out on zoom to raise money for the mental health charity Mind. We will be singing along to the hit Queen song 'Bohemian Rhapsody', though we can't promise this will be a chart topper! If you can help us raise any money for Mind, it would be great especially after the spike in mental health awareness brought about by COVID-19.ABOUT MIND LEARN MORE
On Saturday 7th March, Prospect Estate Agency Employees slept out to help raise awareness of and money for homelessness.
Having worked with Wokingham in Need for many years, this is a cause close to many of our hearts.
Every month throughout 2020, we are randomly selecting one lucky seller or landlord. 50% of their selling/letting fee will be donated to a registered charity of their choice. To be in with a chance of winning money for your chosen charity, book your free valuation using the button below:BOOK NOW
Prospect were delighted to visit COATS’s (Crowthorne Old Age to Teen Society) refurbished premises on Pinewood Avenue to make a donation and see the wonderful work they do to improve older people’s livelihoods and create a bridge of compassion and appreciation between the generations.LEARN MORE
Working in property, we know more than anyone the importance of having a home, so the issue of homelessness is close to our hearts. Because of this, we reached out to local charity Launchpad, based in Reading.
Launchpad’s main focus is homelessness prevention via providing homes, skills and resources to help those without a permanent home as well as those at risk of homelessness. This includes special Christmas initiatives, such as an annual fundraising carol service and a Winter Grotto which provides homeless families Christmas gifts they wouldn’t normally have access to.LEARN MORE
In affluent areas like Wokingham, it is often easy to forget that people who are vulnerable and in need of help live there too.
Luckily, local resident Sue Jackson founded Wokingham in Need (WIN) four years ago to help anyone and everyone in need in the Wokingham area.
Young or old, suffering mentally or struggling financially, no group is excluded from WIN’s support.LEARN MORE
Community is about feeling supported and at times of hardship it is a comfort to know that local initiatives like DrugFAM are there. DrugFAM is a charity providing assistance to families, friends and partners impacted by a loved one’s substance misuse – including in instances of bereavement.
Prospect is assisting DrugFAM through Wokingham in Need (WIN), and has donated £10,000 towards putting on plays and awareness workshops in schools and colleges to highlight the effects of drug abuse.LEARN MORE
That is why this year we are running the Our Home, Our Community campaign.
Once a month, we will pluck a lucky name from one of our recent sales out of a hat and donate 50% of the commission of that sale towards a charity of the seller’s choice.
Not only that, but we will do special features on the chosen charity, giving them an extra platform to promote their cause.LEARN MORE
If you're thinking of selling your home in Berkshire, Surrey or Hampshire, sell with Prospect and we'll give £250 of our selling fee back to your child's school or a local school of your choice!*
Since we first opened our doors way back in 1990, we've always been a huge part of the community and involved with local sponsorship.LEARN MORE
Prospect is proud to show its support for worthy causes. Through Prospect Foundation, we sponsor local schools and community groups but we also show our support for many local charitable groups.
Last year, our Property Management team lead the office in a Wear it Pink day, to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, which was a raging success.LEARN MORE
We were proud to support the first ever triplets to compete in the same triathlon for Team GB. Paying for their entries and travel alongside providing their kit, each of the girls achieved a PB.
Every year a local nursery holds a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. We not only provide marketing to promote the event, you’ll find us there on the day getting stuck in and having fun!
In 2017 we were the main sponsors of Reading Gay Pride. Working alongside Roy and the rest of the team, we provided marketing and support on the day. Not to mention handing out over 10,000 sweets to the amazing crowd that attended!
Local school events are great fun and we love supporting local schools helping them raise money for their PTA’s. At this event we spent the day with Mickey and Minnie and filled one of our Mini’s with Balloons, the lucky winner got a £50 Go Ape Voucher!
The Ollie Young Foundation is a wonderful local charity that raises funds and awareness for targeted paediatric brain tumour research and support. They raise funds through many different events and recently needed to replace their trusted Gazebo that keeps them dry when the traditional rainy British weather comes into force.
After hearing their need for a new Gazeebo we touched base to check the exact sizes and style they needed then got them one ordered straight away. Just a small way we can help them continue the amazing work they’re doing.
Wear it Pink is an annual event helping raise awareness and funding for Breast Cancer research. Every year we get involved with Wear it Pink and have seen some amazing outfits over the years! With big pink baby grows, full crayon outfits and even a whoopee cushion outfit, we have helped raise thousands of pounds for this amazing cause.
We’ll be taking part again this year, so make sure you pop into one of our offices on 18th October and check out this year’s crazy outfits!
If you’re a fan of cars then the Camberley Car Show is a not to be missed event! There were hundreds of cool and classic cars on display, including a DMC DaLorean and the real bat mobile!
From our office based in the Atrium we got involved with all the advertising and then had front row seats to all the action. Those who attended were collecting lots of freebies on the day, including our car air fresheners!
The Pinewood activity centre is a wonderful place packed full of adventures for big and little kids alike! Every other year Pinewood host a festival at their huge grounds off the Old Wokingham Road and it’s a not to be missed event! The festival is a family favourite and we were delighted to be able to get involved and support the organisers.
From marketing the event with boards, leaflets and social media to helping man the event itself, and of course trying our luck on the great games, it was a fantastic day and we can’t wait to get involved again in future events.
We’re big on fitness at Prospect and many of our staff run in the local marathons, so when we had the opportunity to sponsor Maidenhead Half Marathon we jumped (or should we say ran?!) at the chance.
The amazing runners were guided around the 21km course by our estate agency boards marking each mile.
When they came back into the town and down the High Street, our team were there with banners, balloons and huge cheers to help get them through the final miles.
