Since its inception in 2010, the Conveyancing Foundation has raised £1 million for charity.
This accomplishment is thanks to numerous fundraising events, industry challenges and the support of Conveyancing Legal Practices participating in the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto.
To enter the Charity Lotto, clients make a £10 charity donation at the end of their property transaction for a chance to win the monthly prize draw of £500. Nearly 80% of clients take part in the Lotto, with the participating Conveyancing Legal Practice choosing which charity they would like their Lotto donations to be paid to.
Chairman, Lloyd Davies, commented: “This collective charity fundraising effort is amazing and it is truly heart-warming to see how our conveyancing community has come together to achieve this fantastic charity fundraising milestone. The impact of our collective contributions to various charitable causes is immeasurable and reflects the goodwill that defines the conveyancing profession.”
He added: “The industry fundraising challenges have been epic over the years, from the Matterhorn Challenge in 2015 to the most recent Earthquake Appeal this year, collectively the conveyancing industry raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity. Thank you all for your hard work, generosity and camaraderie.”
The Conveyancing Foundation Charity Grant Scheme also provides those working in the property industry with the opportunity to apply for Charity Grants of up to £2,000 to support their charity fundraising events. In 2023, grants have been awarded to Women in Residential Property, who hosted a cinema night to raise vital funds for ‘Ella’s’, and Aconveyancing, who orchestrated a thrilling “It’s a Knockout” event, with teams taking part in an inflatable obstacle course race to support the noble cause of “Samuel’s Promise”.
