Fresh Property Group’s 2020 Charity Week

February 26, 2020

At Fresh Property Group, we host a multitude of fundraising activities throughout the year for our mental health charity partners Young Minds and Jigsaw, however we organise one Charity Week each year in the first week of March, and this year we aim to raise more money and awareness than we ever have before.

Between the 2nd – 8th March, our central services, on-site accommodation staff, clients and residents will take part in a variety of fundraising activities nationwide, with all proceeds going to YoungMinds and Jigsaw.

We continue to partner with these charities to not only raise money, but to raise awareness of mental health issues that affect our residents.

What’s happening:

  • A Silent Auction: we’re offering a range of hugely discounted prizes, from a bespoke Naomi Cleaver Interior Design Consultation for a room of your choice (includes follow-up mood boards and a supplier list) to £250 worth of vouchers from 75 companies to choose from including hotels, days out, food shop and more!

To take part in our Silent Auction just submit your highest bid for the prize you want by email, and whoever bids the highest wins the prize. The list of prizes can be found here.

All bids need to be submitted by email to [email protected] by 5:30pm on Thursday 5th March, and we will announce the winners on Friday 6th.

  • 10,000 km Challenge: across our accommodation staff and residents, central services staff and clients, we’ve set ourselves the target of completing 10,000 kilometres for mental health by running, cycling, swimming, rowing or walking.

We’re even having exercise bikes installed in our London office and a running machine in our Sheffield office for the week so that our staff and clients can jump on whenever they’ve got a spare 15 minutes to break a sweat for charity.

  •  The Great Fresh Bake Off: our central services staff are getting their oven mitts on and cooking up their best bakes in preparation for The Great Fresh Bake Off taking place on the 2nd March.

All of our incredible accommodation staff are also hosting their own fundraising activities in addition to the 10,000 km challenge, including raffles, cake sales, Donuts for donations, flat cleans and much more!

Help us fundraise!

Our Silent Auction is open to all, so make sure you take a look and bid for one of our fantastic lots.

Alternatively head over to our charity pages and make donation to either our UK charity partner YoungMinds via our JustGiving Page or our Irish charity partner Jigsaw via our EveryDayHero Page

We’re looking forward to getting stuck in and sharing how our staff and residents get on with their fundraising challenges to raise money for a cause close to our hearts (and heads), mental health.
