The Estate Agent Content Club has continued its charitable donations this month to the tune of £550 to community groups across England. Through its social responsibility arm called The Karma Club, has now donated more than £5000 this year to good causes, clubs and charities.
The club provides 12 articles a month as well as other marketing services to non-competing independent estate agencies. Its founder and self-declared Deputy Chief Tea Boy, Jerry Lyons, explained the thinking behind the donations. “We take £5 from each of our members’ monthly subscription and put it into a Karma Club community pot. Then we ask our members if they have any local groups or charities, they would like to donate £100 to, and if they do, we match-fund it with £100 from the community pot.”
In October, the club supported the following groups and causes: £100 towards Christmas Decorations for the Royal Marsden Hospital in partnership with Sacha Scott Estate Agents in Nork, Surrey; £100 matched funded by Butler Residential in St Neots to pay for a shelter for a grassroots football club; £100 to Grantham Amateur Boxing Club.
£150 to buy equipment for a youth and women’s football team in East Sussex; £100 to support an additional donation by Storeys of Cheshire to the Joshua Tree Charity, which helps children with cancer and their families; £100 towards a campaign by Seaford Town Football Club to provide free meals for kids who needed them during half-term.
