With the General Election now just months away, Savills is looking forward to being part of what promises to be a thought-provoking and insightful debate with a good cause at its heart.
Mark Ridley, CEO, Savills Uk & Europe, Headline Sponsors of the LandAid Debate 2015
Savills is a global real estate services provider, offering specialist advisory, management and transactional services to clients all over the world.
Savills has been a LandAid partner since 2009.
In July 2013, Hannah Noble, a Development Consultant at Savills UK, took on the challenge of swimming the English Channel to raise funds for LandAid and WaterAid. Hannah and her three friends completed the two-way relay in just over 28 hours; swimming in the pitch black and dodging jellyfish, along with raising almost £4,000 for charity in the process!
In 2014 Savills sponsored the London TowerAthalon powered by LandAid in association with the Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors, which saw the property industry raise over £50,000 for charity. Savills was also the headline sponsor of the LandAid Debate 2015 at City Hall which saw political giants Steven Norris, Baroness Shirley Williams, Rt. Hon Alan Johnson MP and Baroness Jenny Jones debate the burning issues of the day, chaired by BBC Radio 4's Sarah Montague. Their sponsorship ensured that all proceeds from ticket sales on the night were able to directly fund LandAid projects.
