Zoopla employees raised £66,000 for charity in 2019, which means over 40 charitable organisations benefitted from donations, with six of these, including Crisis and Children in Need, chosen as official employee-nominated charity partners.
In Zoopla’s London head office, where Crisis was the chosen charity partner, employees raised money for the charity’s Christmas Wish List and 12 people volunteered at its centre on the 27th December. Regionally, Zoopla’s team in Redruth donated £7,800 to the Cornwall Air Ambulance with a skydive and a 25km trek in the Brecon Beacons.
In Pocklington, York, home to Alto, raised £5,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance by organising a charity football match and completing the New Forest Half Marathon. One member of staff took a more sedentary route to fundraising, playing Apex Legends & Fortnite for a solid 12 hours! Elsewhere Zoopla’s Brackley office, home to Jupix, PSG and PropertyFile, raised over £1,100 from activities including a summer raffle and a 5km Santa Splash Challenge. Their donation benefitted Katharine House Hospice.

Catrin Anderson, Chief People Officer at Zoopla, said, ”We are extremely proud to support such important local charities up and down the country. At Zoopla, we feel that we have an opportunity to make a positive impact with charities at a national level, such as with our efforts to support Crisis, but also within the local communities where our employees and customers live. When it comes to our charity work, we focus on causes that are close to the hearts of our employees.”
