Estate agents across the UK are being asked to take part in a property industry fundraiser to run or walk 100 kilometres between Boxing Day and the end of January and raise at least £10,000 for the British Heart Foundation.

Over 130 agents have already got involved including industry figures such as Kristjan Byfield, Simon Whale, Josh Phegan, Gary Barker, Stephen Hayter, Pete Fenwick and The Negotiator’s publisher, Grant Leonard.

Organisations taking part in the fundraiser so far include Dawsons, Newton Fallowell, Iamproperty, Reapit, Brief Your Market, and Moneypenny.

The Christmas charity appeal is being organised by estate agency Pygott & Crone in Lincolnshire which is urging as many people within the industry as possible to take part.

How to join in

Agents can join in by joining its dedicated JustGiving page and promoting the challenge on social media via the hashtag #BHF100k.

There is also a growing club on the Strava fitness tracker app where agents can share their progress through the challenge.

The inspiration for the challenge came from Jamie Aspland, manager of the agency’s Sleaford branch, together with Gary Burr, the charity’s fundraising manager for Lincolnshire.

Agents Giving, the charity for the property industry, is supporting the challenge.

“As a charity we have struggled badly during COVID but these funds will be a much needed boost,” says Burr.
