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 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.
Any donations will make a huge difference!
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!
We have sponsored Whitegrove FC for almost 30 years now. We sponsor their kits and support the team, with many of our staff attending local games and cheering them on!
