On Friday 4th December, Industry Charity, Agents Giving, celebrated the Acts of Kindness Awards. The event introduced by Patron Phil Spencer along with special guest Kirstie Allsopp was to celebrate all the amazing Acts of Kindness you have all been doing this year.
Agents Giving would like to thank all of you who tuned and took park into the first virtual event which raised £1,442.90 for NHS Charities Together. The lucky winner of the £200 Amazon Voucher kindly donated by ToughRight Software was Becky Hill from Thomas Morris.
Agents Giving’s Acts of Kindness champions were also named by Phil Spencer with Thomas Morris winning the Best Overall Act of Kindness Award who completed many fundraising activities during lockdown showing a genuine commitment to local charities, helping their local food bank efforts and going the extra mile in their local communities doing whatever was needed to help out. Runner up was Murray Lee of Dreamview Estates with his non-stop support and fundraising for his local NHS charities, delivering food parcels for his local food drive and Easter eggs to children, the list of good deeds was endless.
Suppliers to the industry were also recognised with Reapit being successful in the Best Industry Supplier Act of Kindness category. The Special Act of Kindness was awarded to joint winners, Jonathon Martin of Spicerhaart for their ongoing support for the children’s charity Magic Moments and Godfrey Haire of Arun Estates for his tireless fundraising for The Rainbow Trust who provide support for the whole family when a child is seriously ill, including his own family.
