£110,000 of LandAid funding turned three derelict houses in Kilmarnock into homes
A JOGLE - that is, a cycle ride from John O'Groats to Lands End - might seem like a simple idea, but the steady grit and detemination to grind down the miles tally from 1,050 requires careful planning, training and performance.
This particular JOGLE saw a 22-person team from across the property industry take to their bikes to raise money for LandAid, Dementia UK and a host of personally selected charities.
Reflecting on the preparations and journey ahead, Chris Hoddle suggested the team were "Older? Definitely. Wiser? Perhaps. Fitter? Doubtful. Our combined age is 1341, we may just be the oldest relic to travel the length of Britain. Nevertheless we’re all raring to go and excited to support some very worthy causes ahead."
Following the completition of the challenge, we'd like to give a huge congratulations to the incredible PropJOGLErs. It's been incredible following the blog - receptionists drying clothes, donations from unsuspecting Estate Agents - and the journeys, short and long, have been inspiring. 1,050 miles from John O'Groats to Land's End. Absolutely amazing.
The Property JOGLE raised a phenomenal £310,000 for LandAid. The staggering success of this event enabled LandAid to fund four projects in Truro, Liverpool, Kilmarnock and Birmingham.
Many thanks to each and everyone of you for putting in the miles. Thanks also to your family and friends for supporting you in the preparation and, probably, the fundraising.
