CBRE: charity of the year
Thanks to a vote across its nationwide teams, we’re proud to say we’ll be CBRE’s 2015–16 UK charity partner.
Through this partnership, we will help at least 1,300 families find and maintain secure, affordable homes.
CBRE is the world’s largest commercial property adviser, with over 52,000 staff members in 40 countries.
The company will donate a very generous £250,000 throughout 2015 and 2016, and its 1,800 employees want to double this through fundraising. From survival weekends to afternoon teas, they really are rising to the challenge.
We’re especially excited about working with CBRE on its UK Property Industry Cycle Ride, which aims to raise around £50,000 during each year of our partnership.
Some CBRE employees are also giving up their spare time to volunteer in our shops and at our events. And, on a pro bono basis, the company will help us find and negotiate better commercial deals for our shops and services.
We’re really excited about our work with CBRE, which will mean we can help even more people fight bad housing and homelessness.
