Picture of all staff on WBCM day 2014 at the Darlington Office with FRM Michelle Muir
Venture properties have supported Macmillan since 2008, every year participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan.
So far Venture properties have raised over £9,000 including their successful WBCM this year raising £2,900. They do an amazing job every year, taking their coffee morning out onto the streets! The staff at Venture are all so engaged with this event and supporting Macmillan, baking around the clock and also getting some amazing raffle prizes.
This year Venture properties wanted to get more involved, so they decided to set up a sales promotion where for every property they listed, Rent or Sell they would donate £10 to Macmillan, Venture properties have 5 branches, Darlington, Cockerton Village, Chester le street, Crook and there new one in Durham and this promotion is across them all.
- Carl Jenkinson Director of Venture Properties said 'Anyone who has ever had the need for a Macmillan nurse will be the first to praise these remarkable people. The amount Venture has pledged to raise this year is £5,000. This will pay for 70 hours to run a large Information and support centre.These centres are so important when you’re affected by cancer. Having the right kind of information and support, at the right time, is essential. That’s what Macmillan provides.'
- Michelle Muir Fundraising manager for Macmillan in County Durham said I have been supporting Venture properties for over 6 years now, they are an amazing bunch of people, doing all of this on top of their day job. Along with raising so much money, they raise awareness for the charity and services in the Darlington area. Some of the staff have visited one of our services, the Darlington Information and Support centre, which is based in the entrance to the memorial hospital, as it was good for them to see what their money is being spent on. £8,067 will help run a small Macmillan information and support centre for a month. So it is thanks to Venture Property that they have been able to do just that.
